South Wood County Homelessness Roundtable


GOAL:  Community members have access to shelter.


R.R reported to NCCAP with a notice to vacate his current housing because the landlord was setting the property. R.R lives on a fixed income, and needed assistance with first months rent to get into subsidized housing. Because R.R was going to be faced with moving expenses, and the need to pay a full security deposit, R.R would not have been about to obtained income based housing without the assistance of United Way Funding. R.R will be able to live in a cost effective property, and will not face homelessness.  They live on a very fixed income, and would not have been able to pay past due rent and their rent for the next month. This kept a mother and her 4 children housed.
