NRCA Homeless and Housing Programs

 
$900.00 contributions
3 donors

Raised: $900Remaining: $0

Last year, NRCA’s Homeless Prevention and Rapid Rehousing programs assisted 85 households (210 individuals) either at-risk of homelessness or already homeless.

Funding assisted these families with rent and utility deposits, rent arrears, housing application fees, moving costs, and temporary rental and utility support to help households obtain or maintain stable and safe housing.  

NRCA provided Housing Counseling to 76 households (105 individuals) during 2015-2016. Housing Counseling included rental rights and responsibilities, homelessness assistance, post-purchase guidance, foreclosure prevention and financial literacy. 


Ways your donation can help assist Homeless and Housing Programs clients who are at risk of or currently experiencing homelessness:
- $20 will pay for a (mandatory) credit check on potential clients during the prescreening process to determine eligibility for services.
- $30 can be used to pay for application costs required to apply for rental units; a critical first step in securing stable housing.
A client’s transition out of homelessness usually finds them lacking the basic essentials they need to get started.  A donation of $80 can be used to purchase a bed, or $100 can be used to purchase Housekeeping Kits that will provide clients with basic items such as blankets, kitchen utensils, cleaning supplies, toiletries, shower curtains, and lamps.

$1 will pay for a single, one way ticket on the Radford transit system ($20 would secure unlimited rides for 30 days), providing our clients—who typically have limited transportation options- with greater public mobility to pursue employment, attend medical appointments, or buy groceries.
