Helping displaced families find relief during times of crisis.
California is experiencing destructive wildfires, leaving many families with nowhere to go, and a heightened urgency amidst COVID-19. Apartment List is teaming up with real estate partners and nonprofit, Housing Industry Foundation, to help displaced families find a safe place to call home through the end of the year. Right now, we have furnished units in the Bay Area, provided by Veritas, Prodesse and Fashion Furniture, that are available as free-of-charge stays to displaced families and individuals. We will update this site as additional resources become available.
Home is a feeling of comfort and control - and it should be open to everyone. Have apartment units to donate, or simply want to get involved? Join us in providing a temporary home bridge to families in need.
All of us, at times in our lives, have needed a boost - a supportive bridge of friends and family to help get us to that next, best place. Many of our community members don't have that same network. A comfortable, short-term home, along with the engaged support of conscientious partners, can make a lasting difference for those individuals on their paths to independence and success. Right now, the comfort and security of home has never been more important.
We’re partnering with Equity Residential and Year Up, a national nonprofit that strives to close the opportunity divide by investing in highly motivated, underserved young adults. Year Up combines job skills and internships to help ambitious students realize a path to self-sufficiency. Many Year Up participants experience housing fragility, and a home bridge can meaningfully influence their chances of success - in the program, and in the world at large.
In 2018, California experienced the most destructive wildfires in history. Together with Equity Residential, Veritas, Greystar and LeFever Mattson, alongside Housing Industry Foundation and Silicon Valley Bank, we helped displaced families find home for the holidays and into the new year. We expanded these efforts in 2019 with Henssler Property Management after a series of tornadoes struck Alabama in one of the deadliest storms on record.
Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) provides access to medical care for critically ill children. Oftentimes, these young children must receive specialized treatment far from home, and families are separated or unable to obtain the needed care. Together with Veritas and others, we’re providing local home stays. This stability helps young patients get the medical care they need, while families have the security to embrace healing with hope and courage.
We’re partnering with Serena and Venus Williams’ Yetunde Price Resource Center (YPRC) and Equity Residential to help victims of violence have a safe landing. Named after Serena and Venus’ late sister who was tragically killed in an act of violence, YPRC ensures anyone impacted by violence can access the resources they need to survive and thrive. Together we’re helping women in the YPRC community enjoy a comfortable home as they get a fresh start.
