The DFPS Housing Program has designated regional housing liaisons that can provide information and support regarding local housing and rental assistance programs, including helping with determining eligibility, completing applications, and linking to wrap around services. The liaisons often collaborate with staff and youth aging out of foster care, and some work closely with local transition centers.

Regional housing liaisons should be the first point of contact for staff and youth regarding local housing options and rental assistance programs. The liaisons are listed below.
