Securing access to affordable, permanent housing to provide stability, security and promote ongoing health.
If someone is struggling with homelessness or shelter needs, they could seek assistance from social service agencies that offer a ‘needs assessment.’ A needs assessment is designed to determine which areas of a person’s life are impacted and what immediate resources are available. If someone is unsafe, please call 911 or the 24-hour domestic violence hotline 1-800-799-7233 for further assessment and assistance.
