Clients receive gradually decreasing rental subsidies, other financial assistance, case management, eviction defense legal services and more.Program:One-Stop Homelessness Prevention CenterBudget: $303,454Category: Human ServicesPopulation Served: Homeless Program Description: The One-Stop Homelessness Prevention Center at Boccardo Reception Center works with chronically homeless individuals to break through the barriers to permanent housing.
