Helping Families Stay Housed
Since October 2006, our Housing Stability Support Project (HSSP) has provided ongoing social service support to low-income households and seniors, promoting housing retention and continued self-sufficiency for thousands of families.
At the center of the success of the HSSP program is ongoing case management for formerly homeless families. As part of every case management strategy at Nazareth Housing, families benefit from a needs assessment to determine which services are most critical to solve their unique barriers to housing insecurity.
Services are offered through Nazareth Housing programming or through referral to the appropriate social service, government or community-based organization that can help address the family’s needs most effectively.
Even after a family has transitioned to safe and permanent housing, frequent check-ins by our case workers ensure the retention of housing and financial stability of the family.
Nazareth Housing eviction prevention support extends to referrals for rent and utility arrears, unexpected medical costs, and other urgent family needs that threaten housing and stability.
