Screening Process

Individuals applying for state and federal housing programs are subject to background screening. The screening includes a credit check, criminal background check, landlord references and/or personal references.

Applicants for Congregate housing are also asked to attend a Placement Interview admistered by our management team and a registered nurse to ensure that the needs of the individual are not beyond the parameters of our Congregate Living Facility.
