Financial assistance is offered through our rental assistance program to households to prevent eviction and get them back on their feet. Jesse Tree will will provide rental assistance one time within a two year period.
EVICTION-PREVENTION CASE MANAGEMENT
Households with the most urgent need will be paired with Jesse Tree’s social worker to work towards long-term financial stability and economic self-sufficiency. An individual case plan will be created to improve the health and financial situation of the household.
People with an eviction court date set may also be connected to pro bono legal assistance.
Jesse Tree offers financial literacy, budget counseling, and debt reduction skills to ensure the household's income is stable enough to maintain housing. Working with other great local providers, we will improve the household's earned income potential and stabilize their financial situation.
CONNECTIONS TO SERVICES & RESOURCES
Jesse Tree tries to assist every individual who calls or walks through the organization’s doors in whatever way we can. At every step of the process, Jesse Tree links households in our program to other community resources.
