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.
