Housing

Housing Is Key

Wooden block house

The Health and Human Services Agency has several housing programs for low-income members of our community. The goal is to provide support to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness so that they can not only get and keep housing, but to provide the stability that helps them become more self-sufficient for a better quality of life. Here are some of our programs:

Shasta County Plan to Combat Homelessness | July 15, 2019

CalWORKs Homeless Assistance

Family Stabilization Program

Housing Support Program

Unsheltered Adult Homeless Assistance Program

Whole Person Care Pilot Program

The Woodlands Apartment Complex (affordable permanent housing with supportive services)
