In addition, the FCC will work with identified households under the Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) and Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) programs to help each household reach self-sufficiency prior to discharge from that program and assistance. The FCC carries a caseload of households in scattered site units within the region and coordinates wraparound services – such as employment support, financial education, access to nutritious food, afterschool programs, and mental/behavioral health treatment - throughout the clients’ transition to permanent housing, and up to 12-24 months following homelessness diversion. 

Throughout the course of program, the services provided by the FCC would enhance those that we – and our partners – provide to our clients, and would include a comprehensive, continual assessment of a family’s strengths, needs and the services it receives. The FCC would also be able to assist clients in navigating resources in other separate public agencies in order to qualify for support services, and will link the family to the many private sector agencies and community organizations that offer specific support services that address Social Determinants of Health.

Each Housing Stabilization Plan would be developed in collaboration with the household, utilizing a person-centered approach. In addition, the FCC will focus on each member of the household.
