Homeless Services
Homeless Services connects individuals and families seeking help to a network of agencies that provide health care, mental health services, drug and alcohol abuse treatment, temporary housing, and other benefits, and seeks to help clients secure permanent housing.

The Human Services Agency does not define homeless as simply sleeping on the street. Someone is homeless if he or she sleeps in unsafe or inhumane conditions, a different place every night, or in a shelter, transitional housing, or motel.  Because lack of housing usually equates to lack of transportation, social workers meet people where they reside, including homeless camps, to coordinate services with partner agencies that can provide supportive services.

RAIN Transitional Living Center
RAIN provides temporary housing and services for individuals and families transitioning from homelessness to self-sufficiency.  RAIN has a total of 24 rooms: 16 rooms for individuals and families, six rooms for individuals, and two rooms with a total of five beds for adult men and women recovering from injury or illness.  RAIN provides intensive case management and counseling, a clean-and-sober environment, nutritious meals, transportation for jobs and job searches, and care for children.  RAIN residents participate in a mandatory savings program to establish funds for permanent housing.

For more information about RAIN please call (805) 383-7505.
