Program areas at Housing Solutions for the Southwest (Formerly Southwest Community Resources)

Housing counseling: housing solutions offers several types of housing counseling, often in conjunction with financial assistance. Counseling services help identify issues and solutions, as well as educate individuals and families on housing options. Emergency assistance program: this program combines multiple funding sources to help people with both financial assistance and counseling. Depending on the needs of the individual or family, the counselor identifies potential programs that the person would qualify for and benefit from in a sustainable way. Most of the financial assistance goes towards rent or utilities. One example is the community emergency assistance program which helps families and individuals in emergency situations. The assistance can pay for late rent/utilities, car repair and/or insurance, child care or other emergency needs. The goal is to help a family maintain self-sufficiency. Recipients also receive mandatory counseling to help with budgeting, affordable housing search assistance and other needs. Some of the funding ...

Home rehabilitation and revolving loan fund: this program, which the agency has been operating for over 30 years, offers homeowners who may not qualify for a conventional bank loan, a low interest loan to repair health or safety issues with their home (such as roof, sewer, plumbing, electrical, etc.). Funds repaid by the homeowners revolve back into the loan fund to help additional clients. Accessibility and weatherization needs can also be met through this program. Homes are replaced when repairs are not practical. Fire mitigations and/or fire remidiation work can be done with these funds.

Transitional housing/rapid re-housing: homeless individuals and families participating in the rapid rehousing and transitional housing programs receive rental assistance and supportive services that promote long-term stability. Each participant works closely with an advocate to create a unique, self-directed goal plan which connects households to community resources. Long-term goals such as education, career planning, healthy child development, budgeting, and livable wage employment can be achieved with stable housing in place. Housing solutions recently added an additional transitional housing program for victims of crime, if the crime impacted the victim's housing stability. The department of justice selected housing solutions to be the lead agency of a transitional housing program specifically to provide comprehensive services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Housing solutions collaborates with local agencies that provide services and short-term shelter for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault on this program. Also, housing solutions counsels participants and assist ...
