Diversion

While Prevention targets people at imminent risk of homelessness, Diversion targets people as they are applying for entry into shelter.
 
According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, Diversion is a strategy that prevents homelessness for people seeking shelter by helping them identify immediate alternate housing arrangements and, if necessary,  connecting them with services and financial assistance to help them return to permanent housing. Diversion programs can reduce the number of families becoming homeless, the demand for shelter beds, and the size of program wait lists.

Housing Assistance for Families

Provides pre and post rental housing counseling, housing placement services to TANF eligible families with a new Section 8 voucher or those transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing. Initial move in costs such as rental deposit and rent assists families move directly into housing. This program is funded by the Department of Human Services (DHS).
