Emergency Rent and Mortgage

Just one obstacle – a health emergency, job loss or accident – can result in a housing crisis.  PRC intervenes with neighbors at risk of homelessness to develop strategies to help them stay stable, and housed.

People’s Resource Center (PRC) provides Homeless Prevention services including rent, security deposit, and mortgage assistance to prevent eviction and homelessness of individuals or families experiencing a shot-term economic crisis.  The program also assists homeless or displaced households with securing new housing by providing financial assistance and/or supportive services.
