If you need help securing safe and affordable housing, we may have a program that can help!
Housing issues are a common problem for people struggling to rise above the cycle of poverty. We understand. That’s why Brightpoint has developed programs that target this common outcome of poverty. Through our Housing Choice Voucher and Permanent Supportive Housing programs, we offer solutions into safe and affordable housing with the goal of becoming self-sufficient.
The Housing Choice Voucher Program and Permanent Supportive Housing Program both assist with household rent, but have different eligibility requirements.
Contact us today at (260) 423-3546, ext. 334 to see if you meet eligibility guidelines.
Housing Choice Voucher Program
Brightpoint’s Housing Choice Voucher Program helps pay a portion of a family’s rent. This program makes it possible for families to live in safe housing they could otherwise not afford.
Brightpoint’s Housing Choice Voucher Program is based on a family’s household income. If your family meets the income eligibility requirements, we can provide you with a voucher that will cover a portion of your rent. You will be responsible to pay the balance. Your share is an affordable percentage of your income, generally between 30 – 40% of your monthly- adjusted gross income for rent and utilities. To see if you meet eligibility requirements, please give us a call.
Permanent Supportive Housing
Brightpoint’s Permanent Supportive Housing Program provides permanent housing in connection with supportive services to help homeless people with disabilities and their families. Housing vouchers help pay a portion of the family’s rent and are designed for people who are homeless and disabled with either a serious mental illness, recovering from substance abuse, or HIV-positive.
Clients must be HUD-defined homeless and disabled, either because they are seriously mentally ill, recovering drug or alcohol abusers, or HIV-positive. To participate in the Permanent Supportive Housing Program, you must currently be in treatment for one of these three diagnoses with a partner agency.
