There is assistance available for rent and housing needs for both tenants and the homeless in Rogers, Mayes, and Nowata County. The goal of the various programs is to prevent an eviction from happening in the first place. Emergency rental assistance is available to help achieve this goal. Rehousing means finding a new place to live, which can include putting down a security deposit or paying for transitional housing.
The way each non-profit organization does things will be different. Some organizations will give you money directly to help with rent, and others will tell you about programs offered by the government that can give you money for rent. The organization wants the tenant to get help before it is too late. It is difficult to provide transitional housing in Rogers County, and many people would not want to live there.
