Landlords: Why Partner with ForKids?

  • Reduce advertising costs and vacancy loss — Access to a pool of ready-to-rent tenants. Just call us when you have a vacant unit and we’ll match you up with a client who is looking for housing.
  • Clients are attached to needed services – All clients receive case management services depending on their needs and receive assistance with personal budgeting, maintaining good tenancy, housekeeping, general apartment maintenance, being a good neighbor, etc.
  • Financial Assistance – Most clients are eligible for deposit assistance equal to two month’s rent and also have access to time-limited subsidies to help them cover their rent for a predetermined amount of time.
  • Third party to mediate problems – If problems arise, you can call us. We care as much about our relationship with our landlords as we do our clients. We need everyone to make our program work! The job of a case manager is to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and that problems are resolved quickly. Case Managers conduct regular home visits to ensure that clients are stabilized, that their jobs are going well, they are keeping up with their bills and maintaining their apartments.
  • Satisfaction from helping others – Everyone deserves a safe and affordable place to live. By housing our clients, you are playing an integral role not only in helping individuals take charge of their lives, but also in making your community a better place to live.
