The following programs are available (depending upon capacity and funding):

Homeless Assistance Program (HAP): provides homeless prevention services that assist clients to maintain safe and affordable housing. HAP funds are used to assist those individuals that are at-risk of homelessness or are literally homeless to obtain economic self-sufficiency and secure permanent housing within the community. Preventative education and activities are utilized such as case management, housing search, placement and development of wrap around services from the local Continuum of Care.

  • Requirements: 150% of the Federal Poverty level, homeless or at immediate risk of losing housing, agreement/lease with landlord, sustainable income to sufficiently pay future months of rent

  • Services: rental assistance, emergency shelter

Supportive/Transitional Housing Program (SHP): is an innovative housing approach that offers supportive housing and supportive services to homeless individuals and families within our community. SHP offers a transitional period to those individuals and families from homelessness to permanent housing. Case managers work closely to increase participant’s skills and income in order to secure stability and live as independently as possible. The SHP program encourages participants to achieve self-determination through innovative strategies in order to transition out of homelessness.
