Housing Assistance

The largest cost for any family is housing. However for low income families, the cost of having safe, affordable and quality housing is typically twice their household income.

Panhandle Community Services provides safe, affordable, and quality housing opportunities through the Housing Choice Voucher Program (formally the Section 8 Voucher Program). The Program allows individuals and families to locate and select their own housing and use the voucher to pay for all or part of the rent. All housing units must pass a housing standard quality inspection prior to anyone moving into a unit. The unit maybe an apartment, house or mobile home based on the family’s housing needs.
