Contra Costa County transitional housing and shelter.

Residents that are homeless or facing eviction can get assistance from several housing programs and agencies in Contra Costa California. Non-profits and other organizations will provide people a place to stay and, even more importantly, case management. This is offered to ensure the individual or family finds a new, affordable home to live in and that they don’t face homelessness in the future.

Qualified families may be able to access sort term emergency shelters in the area. If available, a transitional housing program will be the next available program. During this process the individual will meet with a social worker to explore the reason for their struggles and access other support services.

The Contra Costa County agencies can often provide free meals, information on job training programs, applications for public aid such as section 8 vouchers, and other support. As indicated, the true objective is to help a family, no matter their background, pay their rent going forward and gain long term stability.
