Emergency housing is one of your top priorities if you have become homeless. Unfortunately, homeless shelters have limited space and are often at capacity. One solution to this problem is hotel/ motel vouchers. This allows organizations to house the homeless when they do not personally have the resources to do so. These are the best five places to find them:
Homeless Shelters
Because their mission is to provide shelter to the homeless, they often provide hotel vouchers when they do not have enough space. Visit the nearest shelter and ask if they can provide you with one or point you in the direction of someone that can.
Known for providing relief to those in all types of hardships, The Salvation Army has a considerable list of services for the homeless. Some locations have shelters and many give hotel vouchers. Find your local Salvation Army and ask if they have any available.
Regional Homeless Assistance Programs
Most counties and/or regions have homeless assistance programs. You can usually find them by visiting your nearest human services offices. They can typically provide you with a hotel voucher or some sort of emergency housing assistance.
This charity is also known for providing hardship relief. They don’t have shelters but most locations offer hotel vouchers to those in need. You can search for a Catholic Charities near you for information on how to contact them.
While they can’t provide you with a hotel voucher, they can guide you to someone who can. This service leads people in need to resources in their area. You can visit their website or call them at 2-1-1.
If you can’t get into a shelter, know that you have other options. Getting to the help you need may be difficult but you can’t give up. You will find help!
