Emergency Family Sheltering

The Emergency Family Housing Program enables us to place a UNION COUNTY  family into a local motel or area house/apartment  for a period of time based on their need and our resources. Use of illegal drugs are prohibited. All clients must adhere to local motel policy and are NOT allowed to leave minor children unattended at any time.  All eligible children must be enrolled in school.  Clients are eligible to eat in the soup kitchen for 3 meals a day and use the UCCS laundry services. Clients must participate in employment and case management services including budgeting and savings to move them quickly into independent housing. UCCS case managers will work jointly with other community resources to assist in rapid rehousing assistance for clients. Clients must accept and implement case plans to work toward independent housing. As Union County is a small, private agency funded,  by local Union County donations, we can only serve Union County residents who lived in Union County prior to their state of homelessness.  Unfortunately, out of county and out of state referrals are not accepted at this time.
