Housing Resources

In a small community like Jefferson County, there’s not one centralized place where people post and look for rentals and many are passed through word-of-mouth. The below list include the most common places that people tend to post information about rentals – whether you are seeking a rental or a tenant, these are the places to look.

If there is a resource that you know of that isn’t on this list, please let us know at housingsolutions@jcfgives.org!
