Homeless Prevention Program
Volunteers of America/ReStart provides crisis intervention and stabilization services for Washoe County families, people with a long-term disability, seniors over 60 and individuals with HIV/AIDS and others who are at risk of becoming homeless.
The Homeless Prevention Program offers deposit, rent or utility assistance. Participants meet with a case manager to address the root causes of their housing crisis and plan for long-term needs. Those who do not receive funding are offered case-management services. When funds are available, Volunteers of America/ReStart provides temporary, ongoing rental assistance to maintain the household’s current housing arrangement.
This critical prevention program helps stop the flow of individuals and families into shelters and out onto the streets.
