Hilltop Neighborhood Emergency Assistance
In 2014, Dear Neighbor Ministries initiated case management services providing short-term services to our neighbors in the Hilltop community. Short-term stabilization focuses on immediate housing-related needs. Flexible financial assistance is usually the most effective assistance for preventing and ending homelessness.
Case management services at Dear Neighbor Ministries provides short-term services to families in order to prevent housing instability. The process includes assessing plans, implementing, coordinating, monitoring, and evaluating the options and services required to meet the health and human service needs of our Hilltop neighbors.
Providing educational resources is also in important component of helping those living in Hilltop become more stable. Classes and workshops assist those living with low financial resources to learn to build resources for a better life by moving from thinking about making a change to creating a plan for reaching the goal of a stable, secure life.
Dear Neighbor Ministries believes that it is much more humane, and ultimately more fiscally prudent to invest in homelessness prevention and support that will lead to self-sufficiency and independence among our Hilltop neighbors.
