Stable Housing Fund

 

Transgender and gender nonconforming people in Seattle are facing high barriers when finding stable housing at an interpersonal and systemic level. It is also known that transgender communities in Seattle are more likely to experience homelessness than non trans and trans communities nationally. In response to our community’s need, we are launching our Stable Housing Fund where community members are able to request up to 300 dollars from Ingersoll to help pay for costs associated with maintaining stable housing. This is a limited fund only available until the end of 2019 and is offered on a first come, first served basis.


What does the fund cover?

We consider a wide range of expenses that impact one’s ability to maintain stable housing. The expenses we’ve considered include paying utility bills, phone bills, toiletries, portions of unpaid rent, rental deposits, furniture, and more.
If you’d like to find out if your expense qualifies under our financial assistance program, please reach out to our Economic Justice Coordinator
