Facing housing insecurity?
Housing Support Services
EmployAbility provides housing support services to people who are working with Comprehensive Community Services (CCS). We help you navigate the apartment search system and address barriers to obtaining sustainable and affordable housing. We work one on one with you to help you reach your identified housing goals with the goal of helping you learn to navigate a complicated system. Services are available to any CCS consumer experiencing any type of housing insecurity. Whether you currently have housing and need help keeping it, would like to find something better, or if you are experiencing an episode of homelessness, we will work with you to explore your options.
The housing search is a daunting task and we are here to support you and provide information. We cannot, however, promise that you will secure housing quickly by working with us. Our Housing Specialists can help you navigate the system but do not have the power to change the system. Most affordable housing options have waitlists that are 1-5 years long.
Our office is located on the Northside of Madison, at 2701 International Lane Suite 205. However, appointments may be arranged at other locations in order to accommodate transportation restrictions.
We provide support in several ways
Support looking for and applying to apartments and housing authorities
Budgeting and identifying the hidden costs of renting
Mediation and advocacy with property managers
Assistance with appealing application denial
Identification of resources available to people facing homelessness or housing insecurity
Information regarding housing laws including equal opportunity rights
