Accessing Home works to bring low- and moderate-income families home through partnerships with affordable housing providers throughout Rhode Island.
AmeriCorps members are trained and professionally certified as Resident Services Coordinators to provide resource referrals, case management, and housing education.
Accessing Home AmeriCorps members primarily deliver two services:
- Rent RIte: A classroom-based curriculum designed to prepare prospective renters for successful tenancy. The course focuses on budgeting, credit, and rental process
- Back on Track: An eviction prevention program that provides one on one coaching and individualized intervention planning to tenants experiencing housing instability.
