Housing sites are located in Independence, Sugar Creek, and Lee’s Summit in Jackson County, Missouri; in Kansas City in Wyandotte County, Kansas; and in Overland Park in Johnson County, Kansas.
Basic program qualifications
1. Adults must be able to find and maintain 35-40 hours per week of employment.
2. Adult and youth program participants must be able to attend 4-5 weekly sessions for life skills, case management, and budgeting. These will be scheduled around their work and school commitments.
NOTE: After submitting your online application, please call the housing site you selected as your first choice. If you do not call the housing site you picked as your first choice on a daily basis, your application will be placed at the bottom of the waiting list.
Average waiting list time varies by housing site, but is typically 3-8 weeks. Staff will schedule a personal interview with you when we have a housing unit available for you. Please call your local housing site with any questions.
