DSO Housing Navigators have been working to create a toolkit of housing resources, and we’re very happy to announce that the first installment of the toolkit is now live on the DSO website!
We hope you will find this kit of resources useful as you work to create your own individualized housing plan; or support someone in the creation of theirs. The toolkit has been organized into 6 Steps to make it easier to work through the information. Step 1 is now available, with steps 2 through 6 coming very soon! Each step of the toolkit will provide information, resources, tools and expert advice from our staff, families, partner agencies and organizations.
Step 1 will provide tools to assist you in completing the My Housing Plan form; should you chose to use it. Additional steps within the toolkit will help you to fill in any gaps in your housing plan. For example, Step 2 “Reviewing housing options and locations” will help if you are not sure where you want to live, and Step 3 “Financing the Plan” will help you explore funding opportunities.
If you need help going through the toolkit, or you would like to investigate alternative or additional resources, please do not hesitate to connect with me.
Additionally, the toolkit will be a working document we aim to keep fresh and relevant. We welcome your feedback and suggestions as well as any resources you feel we may wish to include.
