Frequently Asked Questions about P.L.A.C.E
What is P.L.A.C.E.?
P.L.A.C.E. (Project Landlord and Consumer Engagement) is a unique partnership between local landlords, Lincoln Homeless Coalition agencies, and individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
People participating in our partner agency programs are working hard to transition their lives from homelessness. Stable housing greatly enhances their ability to succeed.
How does the partnership work?
Partnering landlords agree to consider involvement in case management with a partner agency as an additional screening criteria for prospective tenants. Partnering agencies work with approved tenants to help them gain the tools they need for a successful tenancy, provide on-going in-home case management, and respond to landlord concerns in a timely manner.
What are the benefits to Landlords?
Partnering landlords can enjoy several benefits from working with P.L.A.C.E.
*Problem prevention through regular home visits by case managers.
*Tenants are connected to needed services.
*Neutral party to mediate problems.
*Eliminate advertising costs.
*Partnership with professional human services agencies.
*Satisfaction of helping others.
Landlords will always have the final decision as to whether they wish to offer a tenancy to any person referred to them through the project.
