Financial Help Provided: Emergency Services Emergency Homeless Program, Emergency Medical Assistance
Hours: Mondays through Fridays: 8:30am - 4:30pm.
Emergency Homeless Program
The CAC coordinator in this program focuses on the customers' immediate needs - actual or impending homelessness. The first month's rent or eviction is paid, and then attention is turned to other ways to solve the deeper problems. This is accomplished by networking with other programs and agencies, such as the CAC's job training program.
Meanwhile, the coordinator attempts to locate long-term affordable housing through a constantly updated list of currently available homes. A good working relationship has been established with several area landlords, who are willing to work with CAC customers to assure shelter is provided.
The coordinator follows through with the customers, to assure continuity of all services, and assist in any way possible with the entire family. These services can include a wide array, such as utility assistance, health checks, job search, and much more.
