Homeless Prevention & Housing Services
Since its inception in 1983, Plumas Crisis Intervention & Resource Center (PCIRC) has been providing homeless prevention services to help keep children, families and seniors safely housed in Plumas County. As gaps in services were identified over the years, the agency further expanded its housing program models to meet local needs. Today, PCIRC offers a wide variety of homeless prevention and rapid re-housing services, based on an evidence-based Housing First Model, utilizing available annual funding. Current programs include:
• Emergency Motel Sheltering
• Pathways Home (Housing First Model for transitioning offenders)
• Ohana House (Emergency & Transitional Housing for Adults Age 18+)
• Plumas House (Transitional Sober Living Environment for Men)
Each program component requires an extensive screening/application process to determine eligibility. Many programs include participation in case management, peer counseling, independent living skills, budgeting workshops and community service. Participants must be employed to assure ongoing sustainability in permanent housing.
