GOAL: Community members have access to shelter.
C.R. came to the NCCAP office with a 5 day notice to pay rent or vacate. C.R. was recently divorced and living in income based housing. C.R. had received in the mail flyers about the Wisconsin Emergency Rental Assistance program and assumed that she would be eligible for rental assistance through that program for 18 months. After meeting with C.R. and explaining that she lived in income based housing and was not eligible for funding through the WERA program, NCCAP was able to use United Way funding to help C.R. become current on her rent and avoid eviction. If funding was not available through United Way, C.R. and her children would have become homeless. They live on a very fixed income, and would not have been able to pay past due rent and their rent for the next month. This kept a mother and her 4 children housed.
