The Homeless Prevention Program receives grant funding through Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS). Program assistance is based on funding availability.
“Housing gives people an opportunity to build better lives. To succeed, you need a place to call home.”
Our Homelessness Prevention Program focuses on the short-term alleviation of unique crises by connecting individuals and families with available community resources, and filling gaps in existing services. The program’s case manager will work with each client on a case-by-case basis to determine the client’s greatest needs and guide the client in taking the steps necessary to meet those needs. Activities will include information, referral, case management, resource assistance, and if needed, follow-up consultations.
Clients must be willing to discuss their personal circumstances and fill out required paperwork with the case manager before assistance will be considered. Client information is gathered for statistical purposes only and will be kept confidential.
In 2011 KLCAS’s homelessness prevention funds for Klamath & Lake counties prevented 147 families from becoming homeless.
