Information on Assistance

The trustee can assist eligible clients with a portion of the current month's rent and/or mortgage in emergency circumstances. The shelter must be safe and not already in foreclosure. There are documents that must be completed by a landlord or mortgage company before assistance can be issued. The Trustee pays according to Schedule I in the guidelines. St. Joseph Township does not own any apartments, nor do we find housing for you. Housing options may be available through Fort Wayne Housing Authority. If you are homeless and in need of immediate shelter, please call 211.
