Emergency Funds for Health Homes Clients Now Available

Since the majority of our clients live at or below the poverty level, our care managers frequently come across clients who are homeless, in temporary housing, or in danger of being evicted. They also struggle to afford basic utilities and services. It’s hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle when you’re worried about keeping a roof over your head or keeping the electricity flowing–and things get even tougher without housing.

Thankfully, HVCS’ three-year-old Housing program provides emergency and short-term rent and utility assistance for eligible HIV-positive clients. However, because of funding restrictions, this program wasn’t available for our non-HIV clients–until now. HVCS has allocated funds towards housing and utility emergencies for our Health Home clients living with chronic diseases other than HIV–so now all our clients in need can access emergency housing assistance to keep them safe, warm, and as healthy as possible.
