Homeless Crisis Response Program (HCRP) Region 13
The Homeless Crisis Response Program (HCRP) helps individuals and families break free from homelessness. Homeless households are rapidly moved out of emergency shelter or homelessness and into permanent housing.
The program serves individuals and families who would likely remain homeless without assistance. Assistance is provided to help households obtain affordable housing and to increase self-sufficiency.
Compliance with case management is required to receive assistance.
HCRP does not provide long term rent or mortgage assistance. It is not intended to serve those who need long term and/or intensive support. Households must be screened to determine eligibility based on program requirements and level of need.
The goal of the HCRP program is to promote housing stability. Every household assisted by the program is provided case management to help them identify needs, establish a safe living situation, and to create a plan that connects them to the resources needed to help them obtain and maintain housing.
Each household's case plan may include:
HCRP may be able to assist with rent, security and utility deposits. HCRP staff attempts to assist all households with locating affordable housing whenever possible. However, there is no guarantee that we will be able to locate housing for everyone.

Limited funds are available to assist transient and local persons in need.
