Homeless Services and Rental Assistance Data

Homeless Shelters, Motels, and other Services

Rent Assistance and Other Services

Housing assistance is always the most requested need that we hear about at Vermont 211. We've collected data for the last 10 months in a couple of graphs, to illustrate the referrals to homeless assistance, which include prevention, domestic violence shelters, winter shelters and transitional housing, and other resources. The second graph shows the pattern of referrals for rent assistance, including payment and deposit assistance, subsidized housing, housing counselling and more. We also provide referrals to homeowners for a variety of resources, and will include that graph in a future newsletter.

Homeless housing and services referrals ranged from a high of 889 in March to a low of 495 in July. It's currently 534 for October. Rental assistance and services ranged from 65 in March to 29 in June. It's currently 39 for October.
