Poverty, unemployment, and lack of affordable housing are commonly recognized causes of homelessness. Unfortunately, Teton Valley is not immune to this problem. With the current lack of rental properties and influx of new residents, many families and individuals are being displaced from their homes.


While we deeply wish that we could provide affordable housing for all, regretfully this is not possible. Every situation is different, but in an effort to bring clarity to the services we offer, please see the chart below to learn more specifically how we can and cannot help with housing.
