If you are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, you can find out if housing help is available by coming to the CCS community service center located at 1025 G Street in Springfield on Tuesday or Thursday between 9: 00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Depending on the availability of resources and whether or not you are eligible for assistance, the following programs may be able to help:
- Housing Transitions: helping homeless individuals and families by providing rental assistance and one-on-one support for a few months while they get on their feet.
- Homeless Prevention: assisting those who are already renting an apartment but who are at risk of eviction.
- Housing Counseling: providing information and referral regarding rental housing options and rental assistance programs.
- Homeless Family Shelter: providing homeless families with several days of temporary shelter in a local motel. This program is used when no other resources are available and shelter will help bridge a temporary transition to longer-term housing.
Because of the tremendous need for housing help and limited amount of available funding, these programs are often not able to take on new clients. We do not maintain a waiting list. We recommend that you periodically come to the CCS Springfield location on a Tuesday or Thursday for the most current information.
