Housing Placement Programs

Information & Referral

Offers information about rental housing options and supportive housing programs in Jefferson County.  Please be prepared to answer basic questions about your household and your housing situation. CAC Information and Referral is available weekdays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Eviction Prevention

Offers rent assistance for a short period of time and intervention with your landlord on your behalf. While this is happening, you’ll work with CAC staff to make sure that a threat of eviction doesn’t happen again.

Transitional Housing

Offers up to 24 months of coaching and rent assistance to help those who are eligible find and maintain housing.  CAC reaches out to those with limited incomes who are on the Jefferson County Continuum of Care housing priority list.  Contact CAC to see if you’re eligible for the Jefferson County Continuum of Care housing priority list.  The transitional housing program is for those with limited household income and are either homeless or under threat of soon becoming homeless.

Emergency Shelter

For those who are literally homeless, offers temporary shelter at a local hotel.  During the hotel stay, CAC staff will work with you to find a long-term housing solution, and deal with other concerns that may be getting in the way of long-term housing.

Supportive Services for Veteran Families

Offers a wide range of supportive services to veteran households with limited incomes, including services related to housing stability and both VA and non-VA services that support family well-being.  Housing stability includes preventing loss of current housing and, when needed, finding different housing that is safe and affordable.

Telecommunications Assistance

For eligible individuals and families with restricted incomes, offers a way to catch-up on past due telephone bills, including cell phone, or internet access bills that are threatening loss of service.  To receive financial assistance, you may be advised to change your service plan(s) to a more cost-effective option.

Rapid Re-Housing

Offers help finding an apartment, help with the cost of a security deposit, help with rent payments for a limited time and coaching support with any concerns that might affect your long-term housing. The Rapid Re-Housing program is an option for those who are literally homeless and have a limited household income.
