What to do when contacting housing services

Contacting housing resources onlineWhen contacting housing resources it is best to:

  • call as soon as an agency, referral or housing opportunity opens for the best chance of getting assistance;
  • consistently contact resource numbers because you may not get through on your first attempt;
  • be clear and specific when stating your needs; and
  • be clear on what you are able to manage when it comes to your budget for cost of living (rent/utilities).
