There is a reason shelter is a part of the basic human necessity and the lack of it i.e. affordable housing is contributing to the homelessness crisis in the United States. Over half a million people experience homelessness on any given night in the US, and many of these individuals live in shelters or on the streets because they can’t afford housing.

Organizations like Section 8 Managers are working to address the housing problem by providing affordable housing solutions and education and professional development opportunities. 

Their Housing Process was developed by combining best practices to address chronic homelessness. This issue affects a significant number of communities across the US, with high costs and low vacancies leading to over half a million individuals experiencing homelessness nationwide. In California, over 130,000 people are homeless, with more than 50,000 in LA County alone.

Additionally, African Americans make up over 33% of the homeless population in LA County despite comprising only 9% of the overall population. Tim McDaniel, Founder & CEO of the Section 8 Management company, recognized the severity of the problem and took action by creating the Section 8 Managers Housing Placement Platform.

Section 8 Managers is a brand dedicated to helping low-income households obtain safe and affordable housing within 30 days or less. Their mission, “Where Housing & Community Meets,” reflects their approach to creating thriving and sustainable communities through partnerships with landlords and housing professionals committed to serving underserved families.

The mission of Section 8 Managers is to ensure that homelessness is a brief experience, allowing families to resume their normal lives. The organization stands out from others in the field by utilizing a unique housing placement matching system that enhances the suitability of potential tenants, while also indirectly aiding the most vulnerable individuals and families.

What sets Section 8 Managers apart from other organizations is their grassroots approach. They believe that you don’t need a billion-dollar budget to solve a billion-dollar problem. Their solutions are practical and effective, and they consider the unique needs of each community they work in. They have a deep understanding of the challenges faced by low-income families, and they work tirelessly to create affordable and sustainable solutions.

Their platform is designed to be easy and straightforward to use at every stage of the housing placement process, with a focus on bringing housing and community together to eliminate homelessness. Section 8 Managers works in partnership with all levels of government and local communities to remove barriers and optimize resources for users of the platform.

The company’s services go beyond housing placement, as they also offer education and professional development opportunities to help individuals develop a career in housing. They have a certified housing placement system that streamlines the housing placement process for low-income families with rental subsidies, and they also offer training to become a certified housing specialist.
