Thank you for your application to A Shelter for Cancer Families’ (ASCF) Housing Program. At ASCF, we aim to ensure that the accommodations we provide to you and your family are in excellent condition and that all necessary housewares and amenities are provided at no charge to make your stay in Houston as hassle-free as possible. To ensure this and to be responsible stewards of the generous resources entrusted to us, a security deposit in the amount of $250 is required from the primary resident for each housing application.
In an effort to keep ASCF’s operating and administrative costs to a minimum, ASCF gives each primary housing applicant the option to cover his or her own security deposit processing fees. Please know that the decision to cover or to decline to cover such costs in no way affects your chances of receiving services. It is simply an option provided to you to make a small contribution toward the generous services provided by ASCF to cancer families. Please know that the credit card processing fee is a mere fraction of the cost of the services that may be provided to you.
Upon timely check-out, notification of departure to ASCF staff, return of all keys and keyless entry devices and ASCF’s satisfactory inventory/condition of apartment check, your security deposit will be returned in full (minus any credit card processing fee you may choose to pay). Should you decide to pay for your own security deposit processing fee, please know that your contribution will be directed to continuing the services kindly provided by ASCF to the cancer community.
