Tips on looking for housing:

1. Check the classified section of local newspapers where houses and/or apartments for rent are listed.

2. Check with friends, neighbors, and your case manager. Ask owners that have no vacancies if they know of other owners with vacant units.

3. Use the internet to search for free listings of rental units:

• https://www.socialserve.com

• https://www.gosection8.com
