The Ocean County Board of Social Services provides: Homeless Services: The board administers a number of time-limited programs to aid persons who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless. Board provides emergency temporary housing. Help may be available from the agency through a variety of grants and funding streams whether or not persons are receiving public assistance and in some cases may provide payment of up to two months’ back rent or mortgage to prevent eviction or foreclosure. A small number of rent subsidy slots mmay be available to certain households. Other services such as food, clothing, mediations, and transportation are also provided. All cases are screened and referred to all other resources. The program is available on a 24-hour basis through the existing Special Response Program. Funding is limited so assistance is not always available. Housing and Relocation Assistance: This helps persons forced to vacate housing due to code enforcement by providing moving expenses, emergency shelter, and/or rental assistance payments or down payments on the purchase of a home.
