Homelessness Prevention


EXAMPLE:

A male 18-year-old Yuma County resident was attending school in Tucson when his father had a heart attack. The son immediately returned home to take care of his family's needs. Besides the son, the father was the sole supporter of a sixteen-year-old daughter as well. The 18-year-old son took charge of the household since his father was comatose.

The son was unable to access the father's bank accounts and within a couple of weeks the family had not only received an eviction notice but also a utility disconnect notice. WACOG prevented the family from becoming homeless and assured the family would continue to have utilities.

Case management is utilized to assist low-income households that are in a crisis situation and unable to meet basic needs as a result of:

  • A separation of the family that resulted from domestic violence.
  • Loss of income
  • Unforeseen circumstances that increased expenditures making it difficult to meet the following months budgeted expenditures.
  • A condition, which endangers the health or safety of the household.

(The Arizona Department of Economic Security - Community Partnerships and Innovative Practices, defines these five areas.)

Each individual household will be assisted via assessment of the needs of the household applying for/or receiving services and determining incremental steps in a case management plan to move a family toward economic self-sufficiency. To do this, a family may require assistance with an immediate crisis that cannot be met by a family's own income or resources. In this situation, case management becomes the process by which emergency services are delivered. For those households eligible, appropriate services and/or benefits are identified, planned, obtained, provided, recorded, monitored, terminated and follow-up provided where and when appropriate.
