Housing Assistance

Interfaith Shelter Network’s Housing Assistance program helps those who are currently experiencing homelessness find both short-term and permanent long-term housing or apartments and stay in the new housing units. ISN takes individuals and families primarily from their two programs – Rotational Shelter and El Nido Transitional Living and is privately funded without government grants.

Interfaith Shelter Network’s Homeless Emergency Aid Program provides financial assistance, case management, and other services to prevent families and individuals from being evicted, losing their homes, or becoming homeless.
