Housing Services

The Matt Urban Center has many programs and services available through our Housing & Community Development and Weatherization Departments.

In 2020, our Housing & Community Development Department assisted 27 homeowners in securing housing repair grants to help them make health and safety repairs to their homes.

Our housing services continues to provide safe and affordable housing for low income seniors, refugees, low-income community residents, chronically homeless women, veterans, and youth who have aged out of the foster care system.
