Emergency Shelter & Housing Assistance

Without a place to live, those at risk can spiral into a permanent cycle of homelessness.

Critical CRC services are designed to help people avoid or escape that cycle while individualized case managers and counselors work with clients to create individualized goals for self-sufficiency.
