Partner Referrals

We value the referrals that community organizations—such as local housing authorities, housing service providers, government offices, healthcare providers, and other nonprofits—make to Almost Home Inc. We truly believe in the impact of partnerships with other agencies to minimize gaps in services for the most vulnerable members of our community.

Our referral guidelines may change as the needs of our community evolve, so please check back to this page periodically for updates!

Homeless Prevention Program Referral Guidelines

Our Homeless Prevention Program provides emergency assistance in the form for rental, mortgage, and utility assistance. Each household served under the program engages in short-term case management services to address ongoing barriers to housing stability.

  1.  Referral form has questions to screen for service eligibility

  1. Referring staff member will be notified by Almost Home Intake Team once client has been scheduled with a case manager for an initial assistance appointment based off funding availability and most imminent risk of homelessness
