If you are struggling to pay your rent or are in danger of being evicted, the Family Promise of Warren County can help. The Warren County Interfaith Hospitality Network offers assistance to families in need, providing them with a place to stay and other resources to help them get back on their feet. Thousands of dollars of assistance and cash grants can be provided to help people with future rental payments. This assistance can help with rent for up to 12 months. The money is to be paid out on a monthly basis. This is so that the organizations can ensure that people are meeting their obligations, as the program is not intended to be long term charity. The monthly payments are due to the uncertainty of available funding and to ensure that residents are following their agreed-upon budgets and paying their fair share of the rent.
