The Center for Community Resilience (CCR) provides housing case management to support the ongoing transition the hundreds of Jackson County 2020 wildfire survivors still living in hotels or other housing situations into quality, affordable and permanent housing.
Housing case management services are currently available to 2020 wildfire impacted households.
The CCR serves as a collaborative space for ACCESS and additional local agencies to support those affected by the 2020 wildfires. ACCESS is focusing on transitioning wildfire survivors into quality, affordable, and permanent housing. Housing case management services may look different for each household, but may include:
- Advocating for 2020 wildfire-impacted households to help them find stable, safe, and affordable housing
- Identifying short- and long-term housing needs
- Developing individual housing stability plans
- Help program participants conduct housing searches
- Provide participants with rent payment and utility bill assistance
- Potential homebuyer counseling services
- Homeowner and tenant education opportunities
- Collaboration with local partner agencies to provide comprehensive support including disaster relief, mental health, and substance abuse case management.
The Center for Community Resilience is made possible by a grant from the Department of Oregon Housing and Community Services. Donations from individuals and grantors will also be used to support disaster survivors.
