HOMELESS INTERVENTION PROGRAM
Since 2000, Quin Rivers' Virginia Housing Solutions Program (VHSP) has offered time limited financial assistance (through grants and no-interest loans) to eligible households who are in imminent danger of becoming homeless due to an unavoidable crisis situation.
We officially serve 14 localities, but will help those in need outside those boundaries. To be eligible for the program, applicants in permanent housing must be in danger of losing their housing. Applicants in temporary housing or without housing must be in need of a security deposit and/or rental assistance to secure permanent housing. VHSP recipients must:
A housing counselor, together with the approved applicant, develops short-term goals which are monitored during the course of assistance. Participants may be required to attend budgeting classes and credit counseling.
If you do not meet VHSP eligibility requirements, Quin Rivers' Financial Services team may be of assistance. Click here (link them to QR's Financial Services page)
For services in the Counties of Essex, Gloucester, King William, King and Queen, Lancaster, Matthews, Middlesex, Northumberland, Richmond, and Westmoreland, contact Susan Johnson.
Inquiries from outside the above localities, please call the Housing Counselor closest to your location.
