Helping displaced families find relief during times of crisis.
Apartment List is honored to join forces with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and local NGOs to help over 70,000 displaced Afghan refugees find a temporary haven via Home Bridge. Help us support these families who have been through so much, by providing them with a safe place to call home as they rebuild their new lives here in the United States.
All participating refugees have been thoroughly vetted from a medical and security perspective and are fully up-to-date on all vaccines. Federal grants and donations will cover rent payments and utilities. Our only request is that your property commits to extending a one-year lease and amend the standard application process for each rental, including but not limited to: background checks, credit checks, and down payments.
Home is more than a place. It's a feeling of comfort and control. Of total ease and belonging. And it’s a feeling that should be open to everyone. Wherever you are in life. No matter what you are experiencing. Have an apartment unit to provide or simply want to get involved? We invite you to join together in helping deliver a sense of security and comfort to families in need.
In November 2018, Northern and Southern California experienced the most destructive wildfires in history. The Camp Fire broke out in Paradise and reduced over 18,000 structures to ash. On the same day, the Woolsey Fire started in Malibu and destroyed over 1,600 homes.
Together with Equity Residential, Veritas, Greystar and LeFever Mattson alongside the Housing Industry Foundation and Silicon Valley Bank, and companies including Casper, DoorDash, and Wag!, we helped displaced families find home over the holidays and into the new year.
In March 2019, a series of tornadoes struck Lee County, Alabama in what is now considered one of the deadliest storms on US record. The tornadoes created a path of destruction nearly a mile wide, damaging over 100 homes and taking the lives of 23 people.
We worked with Henssler Property Management to provide apartments in Auburn, Alabama for families displaced by the Lee County tornadoes so that they may have a housing bridge.
After supporting families displaced by natural disaster, we wanted to do more for people who need a safe place to call home as they rebuild.
We partnered with Yetunde Price Resource Center (YPRC) and Equity Residential to help victims of violence have a safe landing. Breville, Casper, CORT Furniture, Rent the Runway, DoorDash and Brandless joined in to help create a feeling of home in these donated apartments.
