Homelessness Prevention and Recovery

Project Vida values the role decent and consistent housing plays into an individuals wellness and the health of the community. When families are struggling to afford their current housing or need to find supportive housing, Project Vida can help provide options or direction to other programs. These programs are part of the 211 referral system. If you think you and your family could benefit from housing services, please call 211. The 211 program will complete an assessment of need and urgency, and will connect people to relevant services. You may request a referral to Project Vida but it is not guaranteed.
