Serving Those In Need

Rent Assistance

Edgerton Community Outreach (ECO) provides rent assistance for persons that are facing the reality of becoming homeless. It is our goal to keep someone in their current housing.  ECO is able to assist with a motel voucher for someone who is homeless when resources are available. Varying trends in funding often dictates the rent services ECO is able to provide. A person facing eviction meets with a housing case manager to assess their situation, determine the extent of the need, and work on a plan with the participant so that the participant is able to maintain their housing expenses after assistance is given. Very often the case management services that a person receives is as valuable as the financial assistance that people receive. ECO receives funding from United Way, The Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation, FEMA funds, State Shelter Subsidy Grant funds, and other smaller foundation grants to provide housing assistance.
