Rental Criteria:

 Must make 3 times the rent in gross income. Minimum credit score requirement of 575. If your credit is under 575, we will consider your application, but you will need a total of 3 months’ rent to move in. First month’s rent, last month’s rent, and security deposit. 



We REQUIRE a former landlord referral unless you qualify for permanent supportive housing via Faith Mission or Integrated Services. Please ensure the name and address of the owner/property manager for your current residence are listed. Applications with no landlord contact information will NOT BE PROCESSED.


Please fill out all the social media you have.


EVICTIONS- We do not accept evictions. We count dropped evictions at 50% of the weight of a regular eviction. If you have more than one dropped eviction, it counts the same as a full eviction.


CRIME-We are very liberal on crime, except arson and drug distribution/drug trafficking/possession with intent to sell. They are hard no’s.


 HOW WE CALCULATE INCOME. We use your gross pay, social security, disability, food stamps / SNAP benefits, child support, PIPP benefit, and your healthcare costs into the calculation. Please make sure you send proof of each.


*We take credit, criminal, eviction, and landlord and job recommendations into account on decisions.

*The employees holding the open houses are not the decision-makers on applications.


NEXT STEPS. Once you have issued an approval, you must pay the $75 lease creation and onboarding fee before writing a lease for you. Your security deposit is due within 72 hours of receiving the lease via e-mail.
