    1. We do not have 2 bedroom units but do have the Housing Choice Voucher wait list open. You may print the application from this website or stop by our office during normal business hours to pick one up.

  1. I am interested in two bedrooms. It is my three year old son and I, and we are looking for something as soon as possible. Thank you.

    1. We do have two bedroom units or emergency services. We suggest contacting agencies such as Goodwill or the Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency for immediate help or additional resources.
