SUPPORT PROGRAMS

Haven to Home (HTH)

The Haven to Home Program serves the unhoused members of the community. The HTH program was created to provide supportive services and resources and create a pathway to stability for those experiencing homelessness. The Haven to Home program offers to unhoused clients: access to WVCS Market for food needs, uplift bus passes for transportation needs, laundry quarters, hygiene kits, referrals to shelters, safe parking, and employment resources.  

 

West Valley Community Services partners with the Rotating Safe Car Park, which operates from the North County Safe Car Park program (https://www.propeace.org/rscpshelter.html).

Rental Assistance

West Valley Community Services offers emergency financial assistance (Rent & Utilities) to  prevent evictions and utility cutoffs. WVCS also offers assistance for transportation, clothing, and other basic needs based on eligibility and availability of resources. If you or anyone you know is affected by schools and/or business closures, loss of jobs, and hourly earnings, or are now having to take care of dependent older adults, we are here to help.
