Homeless Prevention Call Center
The Homeless Prevention department (HP) provides services to 10 Northern Michigan counties (Antrim, Benzie, Charlevoix, Emmet, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Manistee, Missaukee, and Wexford Counties), and is joined by many other community organizations dedicated to addressing housing issues and ending homelessness in the Northwest Michigan region.
Homeless Prevention services ensure that youth (18-24 years old), adult (25 years old+), and veteran individuals and households facing a housing crisis or homelessness have access to safe and affordable housing. Homeless Prevention provides centralized intake, housing assessments, and services for people who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of homelessness. With grant funding from various Federal and State sources, HP provides a tailored package of assistance that may include Financial/Rental Assistance; Security Deposits; Rental Application Fees; Moving Costs; Housing Navigation/Search/Placement; Landlord Incentive Payments; Case Management Services; Eviction Mediation (Landlord/Tenant); Legal Aid/Services; Child-Care; Transportation Assistance; Targeted Supportive Services; Financial/Budget Counseling; and Linking/Referrals to most community agencies and resources.
