HOMELESS PREVENTION SERVICES
Stable housing is the basic building block for family self-sufficiency, yet many households struggle with housing barriers. Homelessness is often hidden in our community and takes many forms.
Families and individuals living doubled up with family members or friends . . . living in cars or RV’s . . . or even living on the street in remote, out-of-sight places . . . All are examples of homelessness. The National Alliance to End Homelessness reports that over the course of a year, about half of the homeless are families with children. Low wages and a shortage of affordable housing are cited by most housing experts as the primary causes of episodic homelessness, but often homeless is the result of a series of events or factors
Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission's Community Services staff are available to provide information, referral, advocacy and caase management for families threatened with or experiencing homelessness. In the rural counties, Community Services can also provide services and assistance to individuals and families at risk of losing their housing, to determine the best set of resources and actions to restore housing stability. Call the Neighborhood Center in your county for more information.
