Need is determined by a family’s current living condition. Some examples of a need are outlined below (this list is not all-inclusive):

  • Structural/mechanical problems in building
  • Visible holes or large cracks, leaks, hazardous/toxic materials, electrical problems, plumbing problems or lack of proper insulation
  • Inadequate sleeping arrangements: More than 2 people per room of different gender or sleeping on floors due to overcrowding
  • Unsanitary conditions or health risks (mold/mildew infestation)
  • Insect/rodents infestation
  • Temporary or transitional housing such as family currently living with relatives, family in emergency shelter or homelessness
  • Current housing does not meet the physical needs due to disabilities

Family Selection will determine if the need you provide qualifies under the needs requirements.
