Service providers connect their client to the Housing Crisis Line, ensure their documentation is in order (social security card, disability verifications), explore other housing options while their client is on the housing wait list (CDA/HRA mainstream vouchers, affordable housing units, etc.) and assist with housing applications once a housing resource is matched to your client.
