Cross-Lines Housing Stabilization Program promotes housing and family stability by providing rent and utility assistance as well as homeless re-housing services. Many low-income families are one paycheck away from a financial crisis. An unexpected expense due to a car repair or sudden illness is often enough to cause many families to become unstably housed, or even homeless. Our Case Managers work with people to address the immediate needs and also help the families find long-term financial stability to keep families together in their homes.

Keeping families warm in the winter and cool in the summer is an important service we provide. This program is limited to residents of Wyandotte County.
Through the rent assistance program, cross-lines works with families to prevent eviction when they have received an eviction notice. This program prevents homelessness and promotes family stability. This program is limited to residents of Wyandotte County.
