Landlord Recruitment & Retention Program

JOIN is actively recruiting landlords and property managers to assist with extending housing opportunities to folks experiencing homelessness in our community. Under this partnership, LRRP works with community partners to provide support for landlords and property managers, forming partnerships to engender safe and stable housing opportunities for homeless members of our community. This is your opportunity to make a difference and take a step to helping end homelessness in the Portland metro area!


For participating landlords and property managers, we offer the following benefits:

  • Guaranteed Rent/Deposit: JOIN and partnering agencies work with prospective tenants who have a stable source of income, receive permanent housing vouchers and/or short term rental assistance. JOIN and our partner agencies also assist prospective tenants with move in costs, to include security deposit and first month’s rent.
  • Proactive Support: We provide assistance filling your vacant units with people who are eager to succeed! To assist in their success, we offer ongoing case management and supportive services for tenants being housed. Case managers conduct regular home and/or office visits to ensure that tenants are stabilized in their new environment, and provide assistance with job placement and benefits acquisition.
  • A financial safety net: For tenants who encounter financial difficulty, assistance with eviction prevention is offered.
  • Renter’s Insurance: If required, one year of renter’s insurance will be provided for prospective tenants.
  • Neutral Mediation: If problems arise related to the tenant’s housing stability, landlords and property managers may contact the tenant’s case manager for assistance, and are provided a 24-hour call number, staffed by LRRP, to call for assistance with mediating issues/concerns.
  • Tenant Education: All prospective tenants receive ongoing education to include topics such as personal budgeting, housekeeping and being a good neighbor.
  • Risk Mitigation Funds: Mitigation funds are provided for participating landlords and property managers where tenancies do not work out. Landlords and property managers may access risk mitigation funds for documented damages to a unit beyond the tenant’s security deposit. Said funds may also be applied toward eviction and court fees, as well as muck out service.
