Last-Modified: 2021-09-09 10:19:40
Western Community Action operates a number of programs designed to help people stay in their homes or get set up in affordable housing if they are homeless or about to become homeless.
Case managers can aid in the search for affordable housing, connect people to employment resources, and work with the individual or family on creating a plan for long-term housing stability. In these economic times, people who never thought they would need assistance are seeking services.
Assistance type and amount varies depending on a person’s situation and their eligibility. However, they are often able to assist with past-due rent or mortgage, first month’s rent and deposit for homeless individuals and families, application assistance, transportation assistance, and more.
*Not all people may be eligible for services, as eligibility differs for each program and all assistance is subject to availability of funding.
Mission Statement: Eliminating poverty by empowering individuals and strengthening communities.
