With rent prices increasing across the Treasure Valley, Jesse Tree is reporting more questionable and even illegal terms in lease agreements. But for people struggling with lease agreements or evictions, there are several local resources to help with housing conflicts.
Jesse Tree works with people in need to provide financial assistance and case management to those at risk of eviction and homelessness. The nonprofit has resources available to anyone who is:
- Living in Ada or Canyon County
- Behind in rental payments
- Already housed or living in a hotel and have secured a new place to live but need a security deposit assistance to move
Jesse Tree cannot help anyone who is already living on the streets, but urges anyone who is already unhoused to call Our Path Home.
Applications for assistance are available online, by text/call at 208-383-99486 or in-person at 1121 W. Miller Street in Boise.
We are in court each week doing everything we can to prevent eviction. Jesse Tree helps our clients with eviction court dates with case management to support them through the process.— Jesse Tree (@jessetreeidaho) July 20, 2022
