HOUSING

Where a person lives is more than just their house or apartment – it’s their home and their place in the community. Housing Services helps people navigate the process of applying for financial assistance to prevent eviction, and helps steer qualified individuals through the process of securing housing. The program also has very limited temporary shelter funds for qualified people experiencing a gap in housing. Clients gain the confidence they need to maintain their housing because we understand where they are on their journey and meet them there, helping them to set realistic goals and directing them to the tools and resources that can help them along the way.
