Homeless Prevention

Our Homeless Prevention Program is dependent upon available funding and fairly strict criteria, per HUD guidelines. This program is designed to help residents maintain their existing housing when they are facing eviction due to an unexpected emergency expense. Eligible clients are less than 3 months in arrears with their rent, proven to be due to a large unavoidable expense. Clients are screened for eligibility and then we work directly with landlords to bring them current on their rent. This is intended to be a one-time program for county residents who can sustain their current rent and designed to prevent them from ever becoming homeless. Funding for this program is limited and clients must meet eligibility criteria. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact our office at 908-782-2490.
