(United Way, 2015) Even when both parents are working full time, many families in our community are struggling to cover the costs of rent, food, child care and health care. An unplanned life change such as a health crisis or job layoff can be financially devastating and puts these families at risk of losing their housing. By providing short-term financial assistance, counseling and other supportive services to help families regain stability, we can prevent them from being evicted, losing their homes and becoming homeless.

Physical Health Homelessness and a lack of safe and stable housing can negatively impact health.

Housing stability also allows people with chronic diseases, such as diabetes and asthma, to have better success managing their illness. Here are some of the ways ShelterCare helps our program participants improve their physical health.     Help establishing a primary care provider     Transportation to medical appointments     Assistance and advocacy with community service providers Removing Barriers Common barriers to housing include high application fees and deposits, lack of ID, insufficient income, past evictions, criminal history or recovery.

Helpful Definitions For Sheltercare Eugene:
Transitional housing is affordable supportive housing designed to provide housing and appropriate support services to persons who are homeless or who are close to homelessness. The transition is to help them be more self sufficient to move towards independent living on their own. Transitional housing locations are oftentimes called Halfway Houses. The naming of the two (Halfway House OR Transitional House) is oftentimes interchangeable.

Many Transitional Housing programs are subsidized and are income based. Income based transitional housing generally charges 30% of your income for rent when you do have income. Contact the transitional housing facility to see if this applies.

Services provided at transitional housing facilities varies from substance abuse treatment, to psychological assistance, job training, domestic violence assistance, etc. The assistance provided varies, but it is generally affordable and low cost housing. Read the descriptions of each of the transitional living locations for more detailed information.
