The Bucks County Homeless Prevention Program is designed to provide financial assistance and case management services to households who are currently in housing but are at imminent risk of becoming homeless and who need temporary assistance to prevent them from becoming literally homeless.
Housing and Supportive Services for Victims of Human Trafficking
YWCA Bucks County, in partnership with the Bucks County Housing Department, A Woman’s Place, Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA), and Worthwhile Wear will address the complex needs of human trafficking victims through a comprehensive system which focuses on housing and specialized services. Our goal is to expand capacity in Bucks County to serve victims of human trafficking, strengthen connections to housing and victim-centered services, educate and train the community about human trafficking, and reduce barriers that prevent victims from being permanently housed, self-sufficient and stable.
Rapid Rehousing (RRH)
RRH assists individuals and families quickly exist homelessness and return to permanent housing within Bucks County. This transitional housing program provides women and children with short-term rental assistance, intensive case management and a full network of support services.
Haven house is a temporary safe house for women and children fleeing human trafficking. To bridge the gap between crisis housing and RRH, the YWCA Haven House provides victims of human trafficking a safe place to reside and receive supportive services until they are placed in their own apartment through RRH. The average stay time is between 30 to 60 days. During their stay in the temporary shelter, participants will continue to receive crisis advocacy, trauma informed counseling and other supportive services.
