Housing Programs

Homelessness Crisis Response Program

The Homelessness Crisis Response Program provides temporary rental assistance for individuals or families experiencing a momentary emergency that may jeopardize their housing. The program was designed to assist individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness, or at imminent risk of literal homelessness, obtain permanent housing. Case managers meet with and assess all participants and their needs. In addition to rental assistance, the team will make all applicable referrals to other agencies and programs that can assist the consumer in continuing their self-sufficiency.

Appropriate Referrals to Homelessness Prevention:

  • Low-income individuals or families currently experiencing homelessness.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Referral from Homeless Shelter.

Our society is facing an urgent issue with senior homelessness and housing instability

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has identified seniors as one of the fastest-growing groups experiencing homelessness. As reported by Reverse Mortgage Daily, one-third of the chronically homeless population is over 55 as of 2020. These older adults often rely on public benefits and face unique challenges, including fixed incomes and difficulties finding accessible housing.
In response, we have developed a comprehensive guide that provides invaluable assistance to seniors and their families navigating these difficult circumstances. You can find our emergency housing guide here: https://www.caring.com/caregivers/emergency-housing-guide/
