Centerstone is committed to preventing homelessness in Seattle and we want you to be able to secure and maintain affordable housing. If you have fallen behind on your rent and are facing eviction, we can help. Clients who are eligible for our Energy Assistance Program may also qualify for our Rental Assistance Program which helps with eviction prevention.
Centerstone partners with many local housing organizations that offer temporary, transitional, and permanent affordable housing for those clients that need referrals.
How to Sign Up
Due to funding cuts from the Sequester, Centerstone has had to close its Rental Assistance Program one month early. There is no funding available for Rental Assistance through Centerstone for the remainder of this program year. Please continue to check our website to find updated information on our Rental Assistance Program for the coming program year. To share how the Sequester has negatively impacted your access to programs and services, please contact your legislators or contact the White House directly. Centerstone appreciates your understanding.
