Homelessness Prevention Program
The goal of our Homelessness Prevention programs is to ensure that vulnerable people have a home, either in the form of temporary shelter or long-term housing. These programs provide eviction prevention support in the form of rental assistance for back rent, security deposits, and referral to appropriate community agencies.
Catholic Charities is a lead agency in the Family Eviction Prevention Collaborative (FEPCO) of San Francisco, which represents a cohesive community of service providers that streamline the rental assistance intake process for low-income, at-risk families and individuals in San Francisco. Through one-on-one meetings with a rental assistance specialist, clients may receive direct assistance and the referrals needed to remain stably housed.
