Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP)

CSC’s Emergency Services Program reports on their first year of an ARRA funded program to help those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless secure and maintain housing. The program is short-term rent assistance and helps people with move-in expenses or rent for one to three months.

Emergency Services:
Helped 282 homeless individuals get back into housing
Prevented 633 individuals from becoming homeless
Average assistance per person: $371

The majority of these individuals and families were still in stable housing upon leaving the HPRP program. Emergency Services spent an average cost of $371 per person.

Welcome to CSC's blog and e-newsletter!

These communications tools can be used to make announcements, acknowledge donors and volunteers, post videos and slideshows–whatever we want to share with our online community.

There are 3 ways to deliver info to stakeholders:

  1. The blog itself, which can be linked to our current website
  2. Email news blasts (blog articles sent via email as eNewsletters)
  3. RSS Feed (subscribers read in Google Reader or other feed reader, can also send posts to Facebook and Twitter)
We're excited about these communication tools and look forward to both your input and feedback for continuing improvement and positive information-sharing.

If you have agency/program information you'd like posted on this blog, please send full text and/or photos and videos, ideas, or suggestions to Janet Hessel and she will take the next steps.
