Mission Statement

Rahab’s Hope is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides individuals with temporary housing and employment services to pave the way from homelessness to self-sufficient living. We currently service the community by providing rental assistance and education based sessions.

Description

Our rental assistance program has supported individuals and families exit homelessness by providing financial assistance towards their security deposit and/or first month’s rent. Financial support has also been an aide to households that have fallen behind on their rent and face the threat of eviction and homelessness. Our volunteer Case Manager and Director work one-on-one with each applicant to ensure their ability to maintain housing. Once an applicant is approved for rental assistance, the Case Manager or Director will create a Housing Stability Plan and budget with the head of household. The Housing Stability Plan is used to identify housing, financial, health related and personal goals and outlines action steps to obtain such goals. Applicants are then required to complete at least one outlined action step prior to the release of financial support to their landlord. In regards to budgeting, we assist applicants with identifying practical ways of reducing their expenses and implement savings.
