Tremendous thanks to Amerigroup for a recent $17,000 award to be put towards creative family housing solutions!
Our community does not have sufficient resources to shelter all people experiencing homelessness, which results in thousands of people sleeping outside even though they have a viable path to housing stability. A key strategy to reduce the number of unsheltered households is to use flexible financial assistance to quickly resolve a housing crisis.
The Amerigroup award will be used to assist families with creative solutions for ending their homelessness that would not be possible otherwise due to usage restrictions placed on other funding sources. For example, a household may identify that they can live with family in another state, but isn’t able to obtain the necessary paperwork to qualify for government funding to get home.
Thanks to Amerigroup’s generosity, CCS will be able to quickly exit 25 people from homelessness!
