Preventing Homelessness

Housing retention, emergency assistance and response, homeless prevention and rapid re-housing are all important pieces of preventing homelessness. These programs provide support, outreach, and assistance to many who are at risk of becoming homeless. There are multiple programs in place for short-term housing and crisis support. These range from shelters to food distribution programs, as well as transitional housing and relocation services.
