Bethany Resources and Process

Bethany Inc. is a participating landlord in the Family Rehousing and Stabilization Program (FRSP) Program, but also has supportive services in place for all of our tenants and their families. This will include voluntary compliance with case management, income verification as a low-income tenant as well as providing documentation per the DHCD HOME Program.

As a designated low-income housing provider, we must follow guidelines to provide exceptional housing and supportive services for our families. Good Hope House has rules that must be enforced for the safety, well-being and successful tenancy for all of our families. Successful tenants who have complied with case management, have graduated with the ability to sustain self-sufficiency or be able to navigate to other programs.
