If you need help securing safe and affordable housing, we may have a program that can help!
Finding decent, affordable, sanitary, and safe housing can be difficult on a limited income. We understand. Brightpoint may be able to help through Supportive Housing. The Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP), commonly known as “Section 8,” and Permanent Supportive Housing, both assist with household rent, but have different eligibility requirements.
Housing Choice Voucher Program
Eligibility for Brightpoint’s Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP) 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 find out if you meet the income eligibility requirements, please give us a call at (260) 423-3546, ext. 330.

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. Call (260) 423-3546 ext 332 to start assessment.
