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 apartments in San Francisco, provided by Veritas, 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 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.
