Below is a snippet of a news article WBIR-TV produced on how CONNECT Ministries helps families with housing.
“A lot of people were out of jobs, and so they couldn’t pay their KUB, they couldn’t do rent,” said Eleanor Horton with CONNECT Ministries. “We’ve had a lot of people to come.”
CONNECT Ministries is just one place that is helping renters struggling to stay or find housing during the pandemic.
“They are in desperate need,” Horton said.
The non-profit uses connections with landlords, property owners and other community organizations to provide people with resources or give them a referral. The organization said their operating structure benefits both the tenants and the owners, who are also struggling to pay their bills.
Jeanine Johnson, the housing coordinator for CONNECT Ministries, said they use their funding to place people in available housing.
