Emergency Housing is temporary housing provided for a period of up to 90 days, depending upon the program and the needs of the client.
This type of housing provides persons who are homeless with an immediate place to get off the streets, and also serves as an entry point into the countywide “continuum of care.” It is here that clients' needs are assessed, including the need for substance abuse treatment, mental health services, employment assistance and other help. Depending upon the individual needs and motivation of the client, he/she may then be placed into transitional housing or treatment program.
