LLP helped Jaime start her life again, when she had no where else to turn. Read her story>

The Landlord Liaison Project (LLP) is a partnership among landlords, property managers, participating human services agencies and homeless people with barriers to accessing permanent housing. The goal of LLP is to offer homeless individuals and families who were previously denied by landlords help with accessing permanent housing, signing leases and moving into otherwise vacant units. Participating landlords agree to apply alternative screening criteria to applicants and in exchange receive rapid response to concerns, access to a 24-hour call-in line and risk reduction funds. Tenants are connected to ongoing case management from human service agencies for one year to ensure stability.

The LLP program is growing rapidly and experiencing a high rate of success. Since its launch in 2009, hundreds of individuals and families have been successfully placed in private market rental units. The program is managed by YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish and is funded through generous support from the City of Seattle, King County and the United Way of King County.
