Come here to the HSRC first!
We have 2 rooms on campus available to students in need of emergency housing. This requires consulting with one of our GTAs to better understand your situation and assess if our emergency housing option is your best fit or if there are more suitable resources elsewhere.
These outside resources include:
This program is a Transitional Living Program that is available to anyone 18 years of age until their 21st birthday. The locations are confidential. Participants are offered up to 18 months of services. This includes a bed, case management, skill building, financial support, mental health services, and community building. Upon entering a person is obligated to be pursuing either: Employment or Education. While living there, a person is asked to pay a flat rate or percentage of their monthly income as a form of “rent”. This “rent” gets stored in a savings account and when a person exits the program, they are given the amount back to help with costs of moving into a new place.
The program currently offers 8 beds. When those beds are already occupied a person applying can opt to be placed on a waitlist. A requirement of this waitlist is to engage with an Outreach Case Manager and attend a weekly skills workshop. This is to potentially find an alternative solution to their situation, thus opening up a spot for someone else.
The application for this program can be found through the link provided above. Applications can be submitted to their Corvallis House at 555 NW Jackson Avenue.
This is the primary adult shelter in Benton County. It is located at 865 NW Reiman Avenue. They primarily provide services to families, women and children, and veterans. This includes housing, case management, guidance seeking employment, etc..
They have 70 beds available and are often at full occupancy, but a bed can become available at any minute. They do require sobriety.
