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.

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 clients develop the knowledge and skills to stabilize their situation and stay in their home and community.


The CDC has issued a moratorium on evictions through December 31, 2020 to slow the spread of COVID-19. You may be eligible to stay an eviction if you:

  • Have used your “best efforts” to obtain government rental assistance
  • Meet certain income guidelines
  • Are experiencing significant income loss through a layoff or reduced work hours
  • Have “extraordinary” out-of-pocket “unreimbursed” medical expenses
  • Have been making your best effort to make partial rental payments
  • Would be homeless or need live with a friend or family member (live “doubled up”) if evicted
