ApartmentHomelessness Prevention Program

This program keeps families from losing their housing and becoming homeless by providing small amounts of financial assistance coupled with one-on-one support and training.

ShelterCare's Homelessness Prevention Program, begun in July 2006, helps families with children who are at risk of homelessness to remain in stable housing. Families facing an eviction receive financial assistance for rent or utilities, coupled with education, advocacy, support and referral to community services to ensure they maintain stable housing. 

Families who have lost their homes receive "rapid re-housing" case management to help them access new permanent housing quickly. Families also receive advocacy, case management services and support after they move from shelter into their own homes.
