mission statement.

Promising to support Property Partners who accommodate high-barrier households.

our purpose.

The Landlord Liaison Program was developed in 2018 to create long-lasting relationships between housing agencies (i.e. "Service Providers") and Property Partners by educating both tenants and landlords in operational etiquette, new housing-related laws & policies, and how to supply housing units for residents of Pierce County. LLP ensures that Service Providers will continually offer support services to LLP tenants and respond rapidly to Property Partner concerns.

 

We understand the risk of working with housing agencies, and as a result we provide incentives such as access to Risk Mitigation Funds, rent-ready tenants, educational tools for tenants & Property Partners, and 24-hour support services. LLP's goal is to provide safe and affordable housing in every school district in Pierce County. LLP also strives to successfully house previously homeless individuals and families who cannot otherwise access housing due to rental barriers. 

LLP currently operates under the umbrella of Associated Ministries under contract with Pierce County Human Services. Associated Ministries is an interfaith organization that unites people of faith to build stronger communities. Pierce County Human Services connects those in need with services to improve their quality of life and promote self-sufficiency.
