Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority announces ‘Home to Stay Program’


Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority (LMHA) and Lucas County Job and Family Services (LCJFS) partner to provide rental assistance for LMHA Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) eligible individuals and families exiting a homeless shelter


TOLEDO, July 29, 2020: Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority is excited to announce its “Home to Stay” program. Home to Stay will provide eviction prevention and housing stability assistance to LMHA clients and local families exiting a homeless shelter. Clients must be TANF eligible and can receive up to $1,200 in assistance for past due rent charges and up to $1,000 towards first month’s rent when exiting a shelter.


Clients will also attend a housing stability class facilitated by Northwest Ohio Homeownership Development Association (NOHDA). The class will cover housing related topics such as budgeting, credit and landlord relations. Kathy Tucker, CEO of NOHDA, stated, “It is through these significant partnerships that families in our community can obtain and preserve their right to housing. Home to Stay offers hope to those who have faced a financial hardship and are getting back on their feet without losing the roof over their head. It is with great honor that NOHDA continues to serve as a partner to the Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority.”


As a long-standing anchor institution, LMHA continues to develop initiatives that serve low-income persons and families in the Toledo Metropolitan Statistical Area. Home to Stay is funded by a $150,000 Lucas County TANF grant administered by Lucas County Job and Family Services. “We are proud of the meaningful partnerships we’ve developed with LMHA and other community organizations to assist families to move out of poverty. This program is vital to our community at this time - given the affordable housing crisis we’re currently experiencing in Lucas County”, said Breda E. Osburn, Director, Lucas County Department of Job and Family Services. 


Through this partnership, LMHA, LCJFS and NOHDA hope to stabilize and maintain housing for many individuals and families who may be experiencing temporary financial stress. Joaquin Cintron Vega, LMHA president and CEO, stated, “LMHA is appreciative of Job and Family Services for providing the needed grant funding for this program and to NOHDA, who is providing the housing stability class at no cost to LMHA or to the client. This is the result of an effective communication and interaction process with our community partners. We have identified a common vision of success to provide more options to our low-income families and individuals during this crisis.”
