Permanent Supportive Housing
Permanent Supportive Housing is a multi-service program for those who meet the US Department of Housing & Urban Development’s definition of chronic homelessness. In Waukesha County, a HUD-sponsored network called the Housing Action Coalition maintains a priority list of those who meet the HUD definition. Contact CAC to see if you’re eligible for the Housing Action Coalition housing priority list. When CAC has an opening in its Permanent Supportive Housing program, we refer to this list and reach out to those with the highest priority housing needs.
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. CAC reaches out to those with limited incomes who are on Waukesha County’s Housing Action Coalition housing priority list. Contact CAC to see if you’re eligible for the Housing Action Coalition housing priority list. The Rapid Re-Housing program is an option for those who are literally homeless and have a limited household income.
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.
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.
