Housing Assistance

The Sacred Heart Community Service Housing Program helps people with financial assistance to prevent them from becoming homeless, or, to keep them stably housed.

We believe that to have a roof over your head is a basic need of every human being, and to best of our ability we want to help fulfill that need for our customers.

The SHCS Housing Program assists with the following:

  • Housing employee helping customerPast Due Rent, and Rent Deposit
  • Utilities (PG&E)
  • Section 8 Rent Deposit

The Housing Program provides assistance to the following zip codes: 95110, 95117, 95125, 95126, 95128, 95008, 95111, 95113, 95118, 95124 and 95136.

  • Customers must have an HMIS card in order to receive services. This card may be obtained at our Welcome Center.
  • Customers are required to have a Housing Program Pre-Screen, and this is done on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • After successfully completing the Pre-Screen process, the customer is given a follow-up appointment, and a list of documents (budget sheet, proof of hardship, ID’s for all family members, etc.) they must bring to the appointment in order to be processed for assistance.
  • There are no guarantees of assistance. If SHCS is not able to fund the customer, the customer will be provided referrals to other resources that may be able to help.
  • Customers are also referred to other SHCS services as required or requested.
  • The SHCS Housing Program currently processes more than two hundred Santa Clara County families per month for financial assistance.
