Landlord Liaison Program

The Landlord Liaison Program (LLP) is a partnership between landlords, property managers, service agencies and people experiencing homelessness. The LLP project recruits property owners to rent to households experiencing homelessness using a rapid re-housing approach. Families and individuals receive support services to assist with building a stable, productive life.
