Here is some help for families struggling to pay rent

HOUSTON – If you or someone you know is behind on rent and struggling to keep a roof over their family’s heads, let them know about RaiseUp Families.

The Houston non-profit organization is looking for more clients to offer a hand up through a 9-month program. If your family is chosen, you will receive help with rent, utilities, transportation and childcare while going through budgeting workshops and counseling.

To qualify, your family must:

1. Be behind with rent

2. Have one adult family member in the household physically and legally able to work

3. Not have abuse issues, such as alcohol/drug problems or domestic violence

4. Have one or more children living in the household who are pre-K-12th grade
