Housing Programs

CW Solutions proudly operates several housing programs, utilizing a Housing First, Rapid Re-Housing model. We understand housing is a core component for individual and family stability. 

Each of our housing programs has a specific target population and is limited by that program's funding eligibility rules. We recognize no program can address all housing needs or include all populations. We approach housing with a two-pronged focus:

  1. Providing support to identify short-term housing options to address an in-the-moment crisis, including referrals to agencies that provide these housing options.
  2. Long-term sustainable housing.

As a No Wrong Door agency, we are committed to connecting individuals and families to additional housing programs in their communities that will meet their specific housing needs. 

If you have questions about our housing programs in our service area, please call our Housing Resource Line at 715-218-2887.

Note: We cannot adequately address housing questions that are outside of our service area.

WHSS provides services to support families in developing skills and support systems to obtain and retain housing, positively interact with their landlord, and lead healthy lives. CW Solutions operates WHSS in Lincoln, Marathon, and Wood counties.

Family Keys is a pilot program through the Department of Children and Families to address housing instability with families intersecting with child welfare. CW Solutions partners with Wood County Human Services Department to provide services in Wood County.
