Our most effective solution to end homelessness is keeping people in their home in the first place.
Job loss. Medical Emergencies. Divorce. When people experience a sudden change in finances, we ensure the entire household can stay in their home and avoid the costs and trauma of an eviction and homelessness.
We provide financial assistance along with case management to help people get back on their feet.
NOV. 1: Due to the increased demand, Connections' eviction prevention funds are exhausted. Therefore, Connections is unable to distribute any additional funding for eviction prevention. Due to uncertainty in when additional funds will become available, we are closing our wait list at this time. We are only able to distribute funding for utilities at this time.
We are actively advocating to local, state, and federal elected official for additional funding. If you would like to reach out directly to your representatives you can look them up here.

Stories of Success: Sondra
“Sondra” came to Connections in a crisis. For many years, she was gainfully employed as a mail carrier and able to provide for her and her children. Then she had to take time off work for a planned surgery and recovery. Prior to her leave, she was promised a light-duty position upon her return. However, when Sondra was ready to come back to work she was informed that she was being let-go.
Without an income, she quickly fell behind on rent. She heard about short-term rental assistance and was referred to Connections. Sondra was quickly connected to our Prevention Specialist, and we were able to provide critical financial assistance to help her and her children avoid eviction. Sondra has since re-secured full-time employment, is keeping her family in their home and schools, and is back on her feet.
