 CLINTON COUNTY HOUSING COALITION, INC. Minimize

The Clinton County Housing Coalition, Inc. is a non-profit social service agency located Clinton County, Pennsylvania.  The organization was founded in 2007 by concerned members of local churches and agencies who came together to address housing and homelessness in Clinton County.  In 2008, the group formally incorporated and in 2010, they received 501(c)3 non-profit organization status from the IRS.  The corporation has assembled a dedicated, knowledgeable Board of Directors selected from key human service providers throughout the community.

Our goal is to provide housing and personal development to assist residents in overcoming barriers to stability and self-sufficiency.


  

 LIFE CENTER & MERIT HOUSE EMERGENCY SHELTERS Minimize

The Life Center provides short-term temporary housing for families and individuals who are homeless or at risk for becoming homeless.  The Merit House provides emergency overnight shelter for single adults.  Clients in either program may participate in case management services.

 

Following HUD’s “Housing First” model, clients are quickly moved into permanent housing then offered individualized case management services that assist them in overcoming barriers to stability and self-sufficiency.  This model help to reduce stress to those experiencing housing crisis.

 


  

 CASE MANAGEMENT & LIFE SKILLS TRAINING Minimize

Clients are eligible for Case Management for up to twelve months. Life Skills Training includes both in-house counseling and links to community service agencies for assistance.  Major topics include:

  • Obtaining & Maintaining Housing
  • Job Search & Workplace Skills
  • Budgeting
  • Mental Health Counseling

 RENTAL ASSISTANCE & PERMANENT HOUSING Minimize

The Clinton County Housing Coalition administers a variety of rental assistance programs including:


  • Emergency Solutions Grant
  • Homelessness Assistance Program
  • PHARE Act 13 Funds
  • United Way Emergency Shelter Funds

 These programs typically all provide security deposit and short-term rental assistance; however, the eligibility requirements and guidelines are unique for each program.  Not all applicants will qualify.  To get started, please refer to the section “Accessing Services” below.

 

Our history of working with local landlords helps our client’s ability to locate and maintain permanent housing.  Providing case management services even after the rental assistance ends increases a landlord’s willing to work with hard-to-place households.
