We Are Here to Help.

  • Homeless to Housing

    This is a short-term rental assistance program for families in temporary crisis. The program will pay the first month’s rent and security deposit on an approved housing unit. Each month thereafter, Open Doors will pay a declining portion of the rent until 100% of the rent is covered by the participant. While in this program, families meet regularly with a case manager. This program has specific eligibility requirements and requires enrollment. There is no application for this program. 

  • Street Outreach

    Homeless to Housing case managers canvas the Davis County area on a regular basis in search of individuals who are experiencing literal homelessness and are not yet linked with homeless services. This program connects homeless individuals with homeless to housing case managers to help provide education about shelters, needed resources, and homeless to housing assistance. As an outreach program, there is no application for this program. 

  • Emergency Shelter

    Assists families in a housing crisis (insufficient/unsafe housing, at the door of homelessness, experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence) with short-term motel vouchers. While receiving this assistance, families meet with a case manager to identify housing needs and barriers and to connect them to needed community resources. The program has specific eligibility requirements. Eligibility must be determined before an application for assistance can be provided. 

  • Homeless Prevention

    Assists households in a housing crisis and facing possible eviction caused by the direct impact of COVID-19. Assists with landlord mediation to help keep the family in their unit and assists with one-time rent assistance to get the family caught up on payments. If staying in the unit is not possible, Open Doors can assist them into another unit (with approval) and help with the security deposit and first month’s rent. The program has specific eligibility requirements for enrollment. There is no application for this program.
