BURLINGTON, N.C. — The shelter at Allied Churches of Alamance County, the United Way, and local property owners have formed a new partnership to help residents staying in the shelter find brand new apartments at 30 to 40 percent discounts.
Three families have moved in to Oak Point apartments since last week.
The shelter’s executive director Kim Crawford says the goal of the partnership is help make that transition smoother and more affordable.
To qualify, residents have to have a job and take financial literacy classes and tenant training classes.
Shelter officials are talking with landlords and owners of other apartment buildings to see if they can expand the partnership all over the city.
