The housing navigator will coordinate with applicants case management staff, other providers of services and shelter for the homeless, and shelter residents. The housing navigator is expected to work with shelter residents throughout the state, rather than exclusively with the individuals and families served directly by the applicant agency. In particular, the housing navigator must perform the following functions: continually research and identify available rental housing opportunities in Rhode Island that are suitable for individuals and families transitioning out of homeless shelters; engage landlords throughout the state to make such housing opportunities available; develop a statewide inventory of rental housing units; assist case management staff and other providers in making housing placements for shelter residents; help shelter residents fill out housing applications; mediate tenancy concerns with landlords and neighbors; provide written information about landlord/tenant rights and responsibilities; review and explain the requirements of the lease in order to assist shelter residents to understand their responsibilities; assist shelter residents to obtain, interpret, and correct (as applicable) rental and credit history; assist shelter residents to obtain identification and other documentation needed to apply for housing; provide other services and guidance to support successful tenancies; and provide other assistance as needed. No additional specifications were given.
