Coastal Bend Texas transitional housing and shelters.

Families facing imminent eviction and the currently homeless can turn to transitional housing and other resources in the coastal bend area of Texas. Non-profits, charities, and other agencies focus on addressing housing needs and providing longer term self-sufficiency. The entire region is supported, including the Texas counties of Aransas, Bee, Brooks, Duval, Jim Wells, Kenedy, Kleberg, Live Oak, McMullen, Nueces, Refugio, and San Patricio.

Resources are focused both on homeless prevention as we as rehousing. Other services can address basic needs that people may have during their stay in a transitional housing program, so free food, clothing, and more may be provided.

In addition, case management is offered to clients in eastern and southern Texas. This will help them overcome the challenge that lead to the eviction or homeless. So clients can receive services such as job search assistance, information on government benefits, and maybe even financial aid to pay for a deposit or first months rent on a new home or apartment. Another option is section 8 housing vouchers.
