Supporting individuals and families at risk of experiencing homelessness through access to resources and proactive solutions

Homeless Prevention and Diversion

Homeless Prevention/Diversion Programs can support households that are in the initial stages of experiencing a housing crisis. Prevention efforts focus on those who are at risk of homelessness, but are not yet experiencing literal homelessness. Diversion programs can assist households experiencing a housing crisis by finding alternatives to emergency shelters. This approach focuses on conversations with households to determine what resources they have available and how the organization can best support them.

For more information on Homeless Prevention/Diversion, visit the National Alliance to End Homelessness's website.
