Preventing Homelessness: Housing Stabilization

Homeless 3

We work to keep people who are safely housed from landing on the streets.

One of Bethesda Cares’ highest priorities of Bethesda Cares is to prevent homelessness in the first place. Through our Housing Stabilization Program (eviction/utility shut-off prevention), we assist county wide keeping area residents safe in their homes with utilities turned on.

Collaborating with a large network of local providers who, we partner to package grant assistance to County residents under severe financial distress. Our Housing Stabilization Counselor counselor reviews the request for a plan to maintain housing once the client comes through the crisis; if approved, our grants are sent directly to the appropriate landlord/utility company.  A safety-net program, this assistance is available once per year from time of last receipt of a grant.
