What is A New Lease On Life?

A New Lease on Life (NLOL), a 501(c)(3) organization, is designed to help those who are experiencing homelessness get back on their feet through stable housing. We bridge housing opportunities with local non-profit agencies and provide an available apartment home at a reduced rate with gradual quarterly increases over a 12-24 month period.

The program offers a hand up to those in need. We want to provide an essential need through stable housing thereby allowing these families to establish up to 2 years of positive rental history thereby allowing them to remain as market renters or in some instances to purchase a home of their very own.

Who are we helping?

Individuals and families eligible for NLOL are just like us - they are working, have children in our schools, and living within our community. The only difference, something happened that caused them to lose everything.

Our Partnerships

We partner with two types of organizations:

  • Owner/Operator Members of the Triangle Apartment Association who can provide housing opportunities

Blue Ridge Companies


Grubb Ventures

  • Non-profit agencies that provide case management programs to those experiencing homelessness 

Family Promise of Wake County

How to Get Involved

Donate! Monetary donations are used to purchase specific needs for the individuals entering the program. For example, mattresses, kitchen appliances, household goods, furniture, etc.

One of our biggest needs is more management companies and owners to partner with us. In order to move the program forward, we need more units. One unit equals one family's home. Contact us for more information!

Why New Lease on Life?

Why not? As an owner, you have an apartment home that may otherwise sit vacant. Why not partner with New Lease on Life, take the apartment home off the market, and help a family have a home. 

It's the right thing to do! During the 2019-2020 academic year, more than 4,500 school-age children were homeless in Wake County alone. In 2019, families made up 31% of the homeless population in North Carolina.  Also in 2019, youth under the age of 18 years of age made up 17% of the homeless population. 

We can help change the perception of the industry! If you are an apartment owner, you have probably at least once been called "greedy," "money-hungry," with no interest in the community. By partnering with New Lease on Life, you can help squash the negative image and be a part of the answer that helps change the conversation. 

You can be a part of the solution! Let's put an end to individuals and families living out of their car, children taking baths in school sinks - we can help end homelessness, one unit, one family at a time. 

What are the Risks?  

The same risks apply to New Lease on Life as they do to any other renter. Not every story will be picture perfect, but when you partner with New Lease on Life, we are with you every step of the way.
