Housing Stabilization Program

Our Programs

Cross-Lines Housing Stabilization Programs promote housing and family stability by providing rent and utility assistance as well as homeless re-housing services. Many low-income families are just 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 Community Resource Navigators work to address immediate needs and help families find long-term financial stability to stay together in their homes.

Utility Assistance

The utility assistance program helps prevent disconnection of utility services and assists in getting utilities reconnected if services have been disconnected. We provide essential help with water, electric, and gas bills. This program is limited to residents of Wyandotte County.

Rent Assistance

Through the rental 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.

Street Outreach

Cross-Lines' Street Outreach Program is led by our Community Resource Navigators. Our navigators regularly go out into the community and engage with people experiencing homelessness to offer connections to services and help with attaining healthcare, social benefits, and permanent housing. Homelessness causes tremendous stress on families. We work to move individuals and families from homelessness into sustainable housing as quickly as possible. Individuals experiencing homelessness can visit the Cross-Lines Main Office to learn more about how we can help.

Community Resource Navigation

All individuals and families seeking assistance through our housing stability programs work with a Community Resource Navigator to evaluate their needs. Each family we work with has unique needs and goals for the future. Our Navigators conduct financial assessments, contact landlords and utility companies, and work alongside our clients to help address their needs and work towards a stable future.

Emergency Showers

Emergency shower services for people experiencing homelessness are available in the Community Kitchen, Monday-Friday 6:00am-8:30am.
