Housing Assistance: The DDSD Housing Assistance program receives grant funding from the Housing Authority of Portland to provide a limited amount of short-term housing assistance to participants who are at risk of homelessness. This assistance is available once per fiscal year, is limited to $600, and is generally rent, deposit, or motel voucher assistance.
The Housing Assistance program has a Shelter Plus Care (SPC) grant, which provides on-going rental assistance to 23 previously homeless families that contain a disabled head of household. There are no openings in the SPC program at this time, however we are taking names for the waiting list. We are also a referring agency to the Bridges to Housing program, which provides housing subsidy and intensive services to high need homeless families.
