West Des Moines Human Services Housing Solutions Program provides Rapid Re-Housing funding for homeless families with minor children in their primary custody. The program will provide partial and temporary rent assistance and support services for program participants. Families will need to be rental self-sustaining in a short period of time. Participants must be able to secure a one year lease in their name. All housing units must meet rent reasonable and area fair market guidelines. All units are required to pass a Housing Quality Standard inspection.
All referrals to the Housing Solutions Program must come from Primary Health Care, the Coordinated Intake Agency. No exceptions. Families referred to the Housing Solutions Program must currently be in a family shelter. If you are a homeless family in need of housing, please contact Primary Health Care at (515) 248-1850 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday; after hours, please call 211.
