Housing Assistance

We help renters facing eviction and offer resources for those needing temporary, transitional or permanent affordable housing.

Need help finding housing?

If you are facing challenges in securing housing because of credit scores, past problems with paying rent or former convictions, please complete our Community Connector intake form and a Byrd Barr Place staff member will be in contact. Or, use our housing resources list for assistance in finding housing specific to your needs.
