Prevention services help families from needing emergency shelter by providing services that help them remain in housing or find another housing solution. Some of Placer's prevention programs include: 

Public Assistance

Benefits programs that serve low-income Placer residents such as: CalFresh (food benefits), General Relief (cash assistanct), Medi-Cal (health coverage), CalWORKs (employment support, including CalWORKs Homeless Assistance).
Rapid Rehousing

Rapid rehousing gives homeless individuals and families assistance in applying for rental housing and paying for move-in costs and rental subsidies. HHS's CalWORKs Housing Support Program (HSP) provides such benefits to eligible CalWORKs families. 

Such assistance is accessible in our county through Stand Up Placer, Kid's First, Volunteers of America and Advocates for Mentally Ill Housing (AMIH).

Home Safe
