Homeless Prevention & Re-Housing

Home / Programs / Homeless Prevention & Re-Housing

The Yolo Center for Families is the homeless rapid re-housing provider for Yolo County. We served as the lead for the original Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program (HPRP), and we received additional funding to continue under HUD’s Emergency Solution Grant program to move homeless individuals and families into permanent housing. The program works in conjunction with all of the area’s traditional homeless providers, emergency shelters, and transitional housing programs. Maintaining or moving homeless clients into permanent housing is the objective of the program; however, we continue working on ways to address the underlying causes of homelessness to develop long-term success. Under the program, homeless clients can receive financial assistance for rental assistance, security and utility deposits, moving costs, legal assistance, and credit repair. Our program requires participants to partake in intensive case management and financial coaching.

Community Impact

  • Under the previous 3-year 1.6 million dollar HPRP program, we housed 625 unduplicated homeless into permanent housing.
  • Our HPRP program was recognized by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development as an example of the nation’s outstanding programs. 

Program Success Monitored By

Each participant is assessed to identify specific barriers that contributes to being homeless, and to evaluate possible solutions. Case managers track program participants to determine if they are able to maintain housing over time.
