Fall 2016

We are desperately seeking housing for several families through our Housing Support Program.
We can pay rent and move-in costs for several months as they get their feet back on the ground. These families are either already working or are reentering the workforce. Apartments/ houses of any size. Families range in size from a couple expecting their first child to a single parent with 5 children. If you or anyone you know has information that may help us find housing, PLEASE LET US KNOW! Call Karen or Viki at 530-273-4059.  Note:  ONLY families referred through CalWORKS are eligible for the housing program.
