ICAN Housing is a leader in providing affordable housing in Stark County. Our housing programs consist of: Permanent Supportive Housing and Rapid Rehousing along with affordable housing options geared toward serving veterans and their families.
Permanent Supportive Housing is long-term assistance designed for individuals and families who are homeless with one or more members of the family having a mental illness, a history of substance use or both. These housing participants face significant challenges to living independently, which requires time and resources to resolve.
Our Affordable Housing Program assists qualified singles, families and veterans who need assistance with rent. Affordable housing also helps individuals who have been diagnosed with mental illness. The program participants have low incomes but need not be homeless. Living in affordable housing owned by ICAN Housing allows participants to have adjusted rent (based on 30% of their income) so that more of their income is available for food and other necessities.
Our Rapid Rehousing Program provides short-term rental assistance for an individual or a family who has become homeless. Rapid Rehousing assists individuals and families who have had a temporary setback, such as divorce or job loss, that lead to eviction or foreclosure. This program is designed for the individual or family who can return to living independently after receiving short-term help.
