Below we have tried to list relevant resources that are helpful to low income people in Greensboro/Guilford County. This is not an official list and we may be missing some information/resources and some resources may be out of date. We prioritize listing resources that are community-driven and respectful of people experiencing homelessness. However, we do not limit the list to groups we like. If it is helpful to low income people, we'll probably list it. Most of the information here is from various nonprofit websites, so we cannot verify 100% accuracy.

The Supportive Services for Veteran Families:

The Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program aims to provide homeless, low-income veterans and their families with workable housing. If clients qualify, SSVF can also provide emergency assistance, food, gas, auto-repair, etc.

Due to the intensity of the rapid transition into permanent housing, all potential clients will be required to take part in SSVF services which help with financial counseling, landlord/tenant relationship classes, needed health appointments, etc.

During the subsidy period, staff will help clients locate and secure safe, permanent, affordable housing. A SSVF Case Manager will assist clients with identifying and pursuing goals for increasing their income or removing personal barriers which stop clients from maintaining permanent housing. This is a collaborative grant program with The Veterans Administration, United Way, NC Housing, Goodwill, and The Salvation Army.

Housing First:

The essential idea of Housing First is that people's need for housing is a basic need that should be met as quickly as possible, without any preconditions. A Housing First approach assumes that people should start with stable permanent housing. They may then choose to address other life issues. But in most cases, after a brief housing crisis, people return to permanent housing and do not experience homelessness, whether or not other problems in their lives are resolved.

There is considerable support for this concept. A randomized research design determined that being prepared for independent housing via months or years of transitional programming did not result in more stable housing, fewer psychiatric hospitalization's or less substance abuse than the experimental Housing First program.

By helping people get or keep their housing, first, their stress levels can begin to return to normal and they can avoid the many negative outcomes of homelessness (job loss, poor school attendance/performance, inability to follow medical regimens, and/or increased substance abuse). They are also more likely to be willing and able to choose to take steps toward longer-term stability.

It is important to note that Housing First is a "First" step. Program participants who move into new housing need to meet the same demands as other tenants: paying rent and not engaging in behaviors that could lead to eviction or non-renewal of their lease, and, potentially, a return to homelessness.

Services delivered in a caring, community setting where all are welcome
The Interactive Resource Center is an innovative day center for people experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Thanks to the hard work of our dedicated staff and the partnership of many individuals and organizations who believe in our mission, the IRC has turned an industrial lot into a vibrant hub of community activity featuring a wide variety of services in one, easy-to-access location. Here, you will find everything from shower facilities to a computer lab, a mail room, classrooms and meeting spaces. Our building is even surrounded by organic, edible gardens that are free for the picking.

This is a safe place to rest, take care of basic needs and access the services and community that make all the difference. Our guests come to the IRC to take a class, do laundry, meet with a case manager or to get their mail. Sometimes they just need to sit in our dayroom and enjoy a conversation. The IRC helps people reconnect with their own lives and with the community at large.

GHC - Homelessness Prevention

GHC provides free housing counseling assistance in locating affordable rental housing or housing with support services for families and individuals in crisis and the chronically homeless. We provide potential resources for other housing needs like utilities. Our trained counselors also work with clients on budgeting and financial literacy in effort to empower them to take control of their financial situations.

 

Greensboro Housing Coalition collaborates with homeless service providers and other stakeholders as part of the Guilford County CoC (Continuum of Care). The (CoC) is a regional/local planning body that coordinates housing and services funding for homeless families and individuals. The role of GHC in the CoC is through housing counseling to work with people we serve on diversion strategies for those that are at imminent risk of becoming homeless. We also work with the Coordinated Assessment/Entry Specialist who attempts to find temporary solutions and/or connects the people to Housing First, Rapid Re-housing or transitional housing programs.

Our Homelessness Prevention Housing Counselors meet with clients on business days (Monday-Fridays, except scheduled holidays) from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Individuals can call our switchboard at 336-691-9521 to confirm that we are open.

Foreclosure Prevention

We provide free counseling for homeowners in danger of losing their home to foreclosure. Our HUD certified Housing Counselors meet with clients to determine their individual needs and what programs they may qualify for. We then work with them to find the best fit in an attempt to resolve their housing crisis.

 

The N.C. Foreclosure Prevention Fund helps North Carolina homeowners struggling to pay their mortgage due to job loss or other temporary financial hardships, such as divorce or the illness/death of a co-borrower. The fund also assists returning veterans transitioning to civilian life. If you qualify, the fund can pay up to $36,000 towards your mortgage and related expenses for up to 36 months while you search for work or complete job training. If you are re-employed but earning less and are still struggling to pay your mortgage, the fund may still be able to help by reducing your principal loan balance so your monthly payments are more affordable. Individuals who are at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure can call 336-691-9521 to schedule an appointment. Our Homeownership Housing Counseling Team meets with clients on an appointment basis only.

Healthy Homes

Healthy Homes are essential for upstream health to promote wellness by transforming conditions that make people sick, rather than waiting for people to need medical treatment for preventable illnesses and injuries. We provide assistance to residents who live in homes with health and safety hazards through education, referrals, and landlord tenant advocacy. To speak with an advocate, call our switchboard at 336-691-9521 and ask to speak to someone on the Healthy Homes Team.

We offer loans, grants and loan guarantees to support economic development and essential services such as housing, health care, first responder services and equipment, and water, electric and communications infrastructure.

Well built, affordable housing is essential to the vitality of communities in rural America. Housing Programs give families and individuals the opportunity to buy, build, repair, or own safe and affordable homes located in rural America. Eligibility for these loans, loan guarantees, and grants is based on income and varies according to the average median income for each area.

Homeownership Programs

Low interest, fixed-rate Homeownership loans are provided to qualified persons directly by USDA Rural Development. Financing is also offered at fixed-rates and terms through a loan from a private financial institution and guaranteed by USDA Rural Development for qualified persons. Neither one of these home loan programs require a down payment.

USDA Rural Development also offers competitive grants to public and private non-profit Self-Help Housing organizations and Federally Recognized Tribes to enable hardworking families to build their own homes.

-Single Family Housing Repair Loans and Grants-provides loans to very-low-income homeowners to repair, improve or modernize their homes or grants to elderly very-low-income homeowners to remove health and safety hazards.

Home Repair Loans and Grants provide funds to elderly and very-low-income homeowners to remove health and safety hazards, perform necessary repairs, improve or modernize a home, make homes accessible for people with disabilities, or make homes more energy efficient so these very-low-income families use less of their income on utility bills.

VA helps Service members, Veterans, and eligible surviving spouses become homeowners. As part of our mission to serve you, we provide a Home Loan Guaranty benefit and other housing-related programs to help you buy, build, repair, retain, or adapt a home for your own personal occupancy.

VA Home Loans are provided by private lenders, such as banks and mortgage companies. VA guarantees a portion of the loan, enabling the lender to provide you with more favorable terms.

Benefits:

Purchase Loans help you purchase a home at a competitive interest rate often without requiring a downpayment or private mortgage insurance. Cash Out Refinance loans allow you to take cash out of your home equity to take care of concerns like paying off debt, funding school, or making home improvements.

Your length of service or service commitment, duty status and character of service determine your eligibility for specific home loan benefits.

VA-guaranteed loans are available for homes for your occupancy or a spouse and/or dependent (for active duty service members). To be eligible, you must have satisfactory credit, sufficient income to meet the expected monthly obligations, and a valid Certificate of Eligibility (COE). 

To apply:

VA loans are obtained through a lender of your choice once you obtain a Certificate of Eligibility (COE). You can obtain a COE through eBenefits, by mail, and often through your lender.

MORTGAGE DELIQUENCY ASSISTANCE

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

877-827-3702


http://benefits.va.gov/homeloans/resources_payments.asp

 

When serious financial troubles arise, it is obvious that living expenses must be cut to the bone. Most of the luxuries previously enjoyed, and even some things which may have been thought of as necessary, may have to be dropped for a time.

In order to help veterans in serious financial trouble, VA Regional Loan Centers have technicians available to conduct financial counseling. This counseling is designed to help you avoid foreclosure. If you want this assistance, call 877-827-3702 to reach a Loan Service Representative that can assist you.


Veterans who are behind in the payments due on their VA loans are warned to be very careful before agreeing to any offers by strangers to make up their back payments if the veterans will "sign on the dotted line."

If such a proposition is made to you, ask the holder of your mortgage or the Loan Guaranty Division of the nearest VA regional office about it before you sign any paper. They will be glad to advise you whether or not the offer is good and sound. VA cannot give you legal advice or service, but it can advise as of dangerous practices or as to the advisability of consulting an attorney.

VA Dental Insurance Program

U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs

877-222-8387 

https://www.auntbertha.com/health/www.va.gov/healthbenefits/VADIP

VA is implementing a comprehensive national VA Dental Insurance Program (VADIP) to give enrolled Veterans and CHAMPVA beneficiaries the opportunity to purchase dental insurance through Delta Dental and MetLife at a reduced cost. Participation is voluntary. Purchasing a dental plan does not affect Veterans' eligibility for VA dental services and treatment. VADIP opens November 15 for the purchasing of plans, with coverage beginning January 1, 2014.

Covered services include diagnostic, preventative, surgical, emergency and endodontic/restorative treatment. Delta Dental and MetLife are offering multiple plans. Each participant pays the fixed monthly premiums for coverage and any copayments required, depending on the type of plan selected. Dependents of Veterans, except those eligible under CHAMPVA, are not authorized to participate in VADIP. Those individuals may be eligible for separate dental insurance coverage offered by these carriers.

The telephone application option is a more convenient way to apply for enrollment, and eliminates the need for a signed paper application. VA staff members will collect the needed information and process the enrollment application for an enrollment determination.

IRAQ AND AFGANISTAN VETERANS OF AMERICA

212-982-9699

https://iava.org/end-veteran-homelessness-iava-recommendations/

 

Description:

Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA)’s mission is to connect, unite and empower post-9/11 veterans. IAVA is the leading post-9/11 veteran empowerment organization (VEO) with the most diverse and rapidly growing membership in America.

Military families and veterans often face housing challenges frequently due to their military service. Weaknesses in the housing market forced many military families to sell their homes at a loss when their service requires them to move. Despite a recently strengthened housing market, continued emphasis on the issue from the public and private sectors is required to protect veterans and their families from foreclosure.

Ending veteran homelessness begins by preventing more veterans from becoming homeless. In order to meet the needs of veterans who may become homeless, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) needs a more in-depth understanding of the numbers of veterans and service members at risk for homelessness.

Many veterans struggle to maintain a permanent home. Veterans returning from service or recently separated often spend time “couch surfing” or living with friends and family because they are unable to afford rent. While families can provide support to a transitioning veteran, some of these “couch surfing” veterans may exhaust their welcome or resources and become eminently at risk for becoming homeless. A broader understanding of the number of veterans just one closed door away from homelessness will allow the VA and partners to better prepare for the needs of those who may become homeless.

 

Provider Description Iraq And Afghanistan Veterans Of America supports new veterans in health, education, employment and building a lasting community for vets and their families. We create impact in those critical areas through assistance to veterans and their families, raising awareness about veterans issues and advocacy for supportive policy from the federal to the local level.

Tenant's Rights Information

Greensboro Tenant Information
Get Ready to Rent in Greensboro:
First time signing a lease? Turned down for past rental history? A Ready to Rent certificate will open some doors! In 12 hours of classes--plus homework!--you can earn a landlord's approval. Call Greensboro Housing Coalition at 336-691-9521 to get ready to rent in Greensboro.

You have a right to fair housing:
Landlords may not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, disability, or family status (children in the home). You should have equal opportunity to see the places listed here, have your applications screened on the same criteria as all others, and get equal treatment after you have rented. If you feel you have not been treated fairly, please call the City of Greensboro's Fair Housing officer at 336-373-2038.

You also have the right for your rental housing to be in safe condition:
You are responsible for keeping the place clean, avoiding damage, and reporting repair needs to your landlord (put these in writing!) If the landlord does not make safety repairs, call the City of Greensboro inspectors at 373-2111. If the inspectors find safety code violations, they will order repairs.

Fair Housing


The Fair Housing Division of the City of Greensboro's Human Relations Department investigates complaints of discrimination in housing.

The City has a Fair Housing Ordinance that protects people from discrimination in housing based on race, color, religion, national origin, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, handicap (physical and mental disability), and family status (families with children under 18 including single parents, adopted children, and pregnant women). 

It is illegal for anyone to discriminate in any public or private residential real estate transaction, including buying, selling, renting, financing, and advertising.

If it is determined after a hearing that housing discrimination has occurred or is about to occur, civil penalties can be issued, in addition to actual damages for the complainant, punitive damages, injunctive or other equitable relief, and attorney’s fees.

To file a complaint or for more information about fair housing, e-mail Human Relations or call 336-373-2038.

Landlord-Tenant Dispute Program
 

The City's Human Relations Department, Guilford College, and University of North Carolina at Greensboro's Program in Conflict Studies and Dispute Resolution have formed a partnership to help landlords and tenants iron out their differences through mediation rather than litigation.

 Read the program brochure - (PDF) (MS Word)

The program is voluntary and can provide opportunities for tenants and landlords to eliminate communication barriers and work together. Issues that can be mediated include, but are not limited to, damaged property, noise complaints, repairs, and financial problems. 

The mediator is not a judge, lawyer or counselor, but is skilled in assisting landlords and tenants in:

Defining and clarifying issues
Reducing obstacles to communication 
Exploring possible solutions 
Reaching a mutually satisfactory agreement.
Benefits:

Gives landlords and tenants the opportunity to speak openly and have questions answered
Remains confidential
Accepts broad range of landlord-tenant issues
Emphasizes cooperative problem-solving.

​Greensboro Child Response Initiative 

 

The Greensboro Child Response Initiative (CRI) is a trauma-informed, culturally-competent, and comprehensive coordinated community response for child victims and their families.  CRI's mission is to support children and families toward safety and wellness.

CRI Promotional Video

 

Why CRI? 


In 2008, a group of people came together because they wanted to make a difference.  Co-founders Lindy Beauregard and Dr. Kelly Graves developed and expanded the Greensboro CRI into what it is today. CRI shares many of its tenets in the Child Development-Community Policing (CD-CP) program model (Marans, Murphy, &, Berkowitz, 2002), but was uniquely adapted to respond to the needs of the community.  The purpose of CRI is to provide community-based, coordinated services delivered within a trauma-informed framework.


Children who have had traumatic experiences may need some help coping with the trauma. Police officers, victim advocates, and community providers work together to help and support your family after an experience of violence or trauma.

Four Primary Objectives of CRI

 

​​Early Identification

 

Intervene early to help children and families exposed to violence and trauma access services 

 

​Information and Education

 

Work with children and families to explain natural reactions to traumatic experiences

Community Connection and Referral

 

​Provide families referrals to high-quality treatment agencies and other community resources to individually address children/family needs.

 


​Building ​Relationships

 

Strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and the community through integrated partnerships

For more information about the Greensboro Child Response Initiative, or for information about how to received Training and Technical Assistance for implementation in your community, please contact Dr. Kelly Graves or visit here.
