Note to users:

The links below are to different organizations that may be able to help prevent you from being homeless, or help you find shelter or even more permanent housing.  Some of them are to help you pay bills or get food or other assistance.  Each organization will have different services, as well as different policies and rules.  You should check through the information carefully, as sometimes what may be best for you is not on the first page you get to on the links.
