Family Assistance Program
Our Family Assistance Program provides one-time, emergency financial assistance for individuals and families experiencing a hardship or crisis that could leave them without heat, shelter, or other essential needs.
Emergency rental or utility assistance is available to those residents of Southern Saratoga County who have received a notice of eviction, are at imminent risk of losing their housing, are literally homeless, or are facing a utility shutoff.
To find out if you qualify for emergency assistance, you must apply with our Family Assistance Program Associate by calling 518-371-1185.
Solutions to End Homelessness Program (STEHP)
Our Solutions to End Homelessness Program (STEHP) is a NYS-funded program to help individuals and families facing a housing crisis. The goal of STEHP is to keep people in our community stably housed. The funding provides financial assistance for those who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness in Saratoga, Fulton, and Montgomery Counties.
For more information or to find out if you qualify, please contact our STEHP Program Manager at 518-371-1185.
Please note that, because of the high demand for financial assistance, clients may only receive help once every 12 months. If you are in crisis, we may be able to connect you with other programs and services offered by CAPTAIN CHS or our community partners.
