Homeless Prevention

The term “homeless” can conjure up images of people on the street; there because of addictions or mental illness. But being homeless is actually much closer to our realities than you may realize.

One or two paychecks can make the difference between keeping your home and losing it. A short term illness, a layoff or high utility bills can put some families in dire straights. Valley Charities uses grant funding and it’s network of organizations to help keep families in their homes where they belong.

If you find yourself in a situation where losing your home/residence is imminent, you can contact one of the agencies listed below to see if you qualify for assistance.
