Searching for and maintaining adequate housing can often feel hopeless and demoralizing. The Wildflower Alliance can help.
Our advocates know what it’s like to not have a home to return to at night, to live in shelters or other group living environments, and to navigate many systems on their way to getting back on their feet.
Most importantly, peer supporters working in housing are passionate about sharing what they’ve learned and using that wisdom to help others along their own journeys.
Some examples of supports offered are:
- One-on-one peer support
- Support group facilitation
- Tenant mediation
- Coordination of community events designed to bring tenants together
- Assistance filling out forms for health insurance and other relevant services
- Assistance in developing payment plans and navigating housing court
- Education about housing and tenancy rights and regulations
- Advocacy and negotiation between residents and property managers
- Information about current housing options
- Connections to community resources
- And more!
What are some of the observable outcomes that result from integrating peer support and housing/homelessness supports?:
- Dramatically reduced eviction rates
- Increased health insurance enrollment
- Increased access to and effective use of health services
- Increased sense of community among tenants
- Reduced conflict between tenants
- Increased connection to community resources
- Increased awareness of and successful application to housing options for individuals who are living without a home
- Improved quality of life
