How can I get my own apartment? I am having an issue with my landlord, where do I go for help? Where can I find emergency shelter for myself or my family?
Everyone needs a home but finding one can take some time. Look at the links under Permanent Housing to get information about available rentals and vacancy listings throughout Westchester. These agencies can also help you apply for Section 8 and subsidized rental housing, as well as help you prevent eviction.
If you need to find a place to stay in the meantime, check the Emergency Housing link below.
If you or a family member is unsafe and struggling with abuse, please look at the links in Shelters and Services for Survivors of Abuse and Domestic Violence.
If you are experiencing discrimination in housing, contact the human rights office or one of the other agencies listed under General Legal Services in the Know Your Rights section.
If you are a Veteran, you may quality for priority consideration in housing. For more information, contact your local Vet Center or Veterans Benefits Agency and be sure to mention your veterans status in any discussion with a housing assistance agency or the Department of Social Services.
