Shenandoah Alliance for Shelter anticipates increase in need
The Shenandoah Alliance for Shelter is seeing an increase in those needing housing assistance this year, an issue that will likely grow worse as the pandemic continues. The goal of the organization is to help prevent homelessness. To accomplish this goal, they provide temporary financial rental assistance to those in need.
In order to receive assistance, clients must document a crisis beyond their control, be within HUD-provided income limits and meet Fair Market Rent limits. In addition to rental assistance, there is also a Utility Assistance Program for Shenandoah County residents who have received a shut-off notice.
While the organization does receive federal and state funding, they also rely on local donations. The organization accepts money as well as in-kind donations.
