Hello and welcome to HERE in Jackson County’s webpage and first blog post!
A Brief Introduction:
HERE was started by the efforts of Jackson County citizens and agencies who want to make sure that everyone in Jackson County has a roof over their head and a place they can proudly call home. We are a new agency working towards obtaining 501(c)(3) status and currently operate through the efforts of volunteers.
Though our agency is in the beginning stages of working towards our mission, we are not without vision! HERE’s strategic planning includes initiatives such as opening a low barrier brick and mortar emergency shelter, providing rental assistance through programs such as Rapid Rehousing, providing housing focused case management services including landlord mediation and tenant education, and assisting clients in establishing community connections with outside supports, all in a judgment free environment that focuses on prioritizing our clients’ dignity.
We’ve got a long road ahead of us but we are ready and eager to serve! We invite you to watch as our agency and services grow, but more importantly, we invite you to be part of our growth! If you are interested in learning more or want to get involved contact us today!
