If you or your family are homeless or facing eviction, our housing counselors can help! We can help you locate, secure or maintain your housing, or assist with navigating the many other resources out there. If you are facing mortgage delinquency or foreclosure, we may also be able to assist. Capstone Community Action is a Local Housing Counseling Agency. We assist people who need help locating, securing or keeping their rental housing, and assist people who are homeless, as well.
Housing Counseling: Families or individuals with low incomes who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and Capstone housing counselors work together to assess needs and to establish housing goals. Together, they create a plan to solve problems and overcome barriers. Capstone can help you work with your landlord and provide you with information about tenants' rights and responsibilities. Budgeting counseling and financial literacy trainings are available for enrolled participants (see Capstone’s Community Economic Development programs).
Limited financial assistance for rent, security deposits and utilities may be available through one of our housing grants.
Transitional Housing: Capstone Community Action together with community partners manage several temporary housing units for families and individuals who are homeless and working towards permanent housing. We also support women and men involved with Vermont's Department of Corrections with transitional housing and to find and secure the life skills, attitudes, and knowledge needed to successfully re-enter the community after incarceration. Our coordinators build a positive relationship with participants and their other service providers to assist with individual situations.
Your household income can be up to about 120% of the federal poverty level. Call us to find out if we can help!
