Hendersonville, N.C. (WSPA)- Thrive, a nonprofit in Western North Carolina is in desperate need of landlords to house homeless clients and families.

The nonprofit receives funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to be able to guarantee rent payment for landlords but the landlord must accept fair market rate.

Tracey Gruver, a Development Associate for Thrive, said it’s nearly impossible to find a landlord or permanent housing facility that will accept the fair market rate, which changes by county.

Thrive serves Transylvania, Henderson, Polk and Rutherford County and those looking for housing within those counties. FMR in Henderson County is about $799 Gruver said.

Gruver said there are currently hundreds waiting for housing in each county. Landlords must be willing to pass an inspection and provide permanent housing.
