Housing

Bridgeway, Inc is a comprehensive human services organization providing a wide array of services for people of all ages and all abilities so that each and every individual that we serve can improve their quality of life, can achieve their dreams and achieve their goals.

The Office of General Assistance offers financial help to qualifying adults that do not have dependent children, in order to help pay rent, utilities and basic household necessities. The Office administers General Assistance to 17 townships in Knox County. If you live within the City of Galesburg, rental assistance can only be paid to those landlords who have properties that are registered with the City. If you reside in other townships, properties are not required to be registered.

The Knox County Housing Authority is a dynamic force in our community, providing high-quality affordable housing opportunities for individuals and families, while promoting self-sufficiency, empowerment, and a sense of community development. KCHA also partners with other agencies to implement programs and services designed to help our families thrive.
