Staying healthy can be easier when you’re in a safe, stable living situation. Your case manager can help you understand what housing resources might be available to you in the community. Frannie Peabody Center has a program called Housing Opportunities for People With AIDS (HOPWA) that is funded by federal government contracts and operates throughout the State of Maine. There are different types of assistance available through this program, which is designed to prevent homelessness. Your case manager can provide more information regarding applications and existing waitlists.
Please note that case managers can assist with navigating housing resources, but they cannot obtain housing units on behalf of clients.
Rental assistance: If you are unable to pay your rent or mortgage due to an emergency, your case manager can put you in touch with programs that may be able to help.
