The goal of the Basic Needs Program Emergency Housing Assistance is to address homelessness and housing insecurity by connecting students with resources that will support them on a path toward housing stability. Case management services are provided with a trauma-informed approach that supports our students’ holistic well-being and develops skills of self-sufficiency.
If you find yourself without a safe place to sleep at night, we can connect you with community resources that provide safe shelter, showers, and even a safe place to park if you are sleeping in your car.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about what housing resources we can connect you with.
