Emergency Housing Exchange
We have discovered that there are clients who have spent weeks in local motels at
the expense of the benevolent community, thereby using funds which could have helped
the truly needy. In these times of growing need, we need to be better stewards of
the dollars entrusted to us by our donors by cross-referencing referrals.
A 501©3 organization under the umbrella of the Community Outreach Center
A central provider for emergency motel vouchers
Initially financed by an $8000.00 grant
When a person/family approaches any participating church or agency (between 9:00
a.m. and 4:00 p.m. M-F), they will be handed off to a cell phone manned by volunteer
tracker teams who will arrange for one night's lodging. The phone will step up after
hours to the crisis teams from Club, Inc. We would like to have 8 teams so that
the team serves one week out of 8.
Clients will be crosschecked for previous motel stays at public expense and this
service will be a one time emergency solution.
More nights will be available if the clients follow up with assigned caseworkers
from Health & Welfare, Club, Inc., etc. who will evaluate and make recommendations
for long term solutions to the underlying causes of their homeless status.
This assistance is available by referral only.
