Housing

I am in need of housing, can IA help me?

Yes, we can educate and guide you through the application process and other government funded housing opportunities. We conduct an informational housing conference call twice a month at which time we will cover the application process and the various resources available to you in your housing search.  We will assist with filling out the application properly and obtaining the necessary documentation you will need.

Please understand that all housing authorities have a wait list. If you are homeless and facing eviction or foreclosure we can direct you to the necessary resources to assist you.
