Housing Assistance

 

ORCCA operates multiple housing assistance programs aimed at helping individuals and families obtain stabilization. Housing programs are designed to help low-income individuals, veterans and families maintain or transition into permanent housing.

 

Services include but are not limited to deposit assistance, short and long-term rental assistance.  Several programs also include personalized coaching from our Housing Retention Specialists.

 

Are you currently experiencing homelessness?

Supporting your housing needs is important to us, however, it is important to understand that program funding varies in size and how it may be used to support our community. We will do our best to help you/your family or refer you to services that may be able to help but cannot guarantee that funding will be available for the services you are seeking.

Do you have any immediate risk of becoming homeless?

We highly recommend you come to our office for an assessment by a housing specialist to see what we may be able to help you with. Housing Assessments are the entry point to all ORCCA housing programs. They are also connected to other housing opportunities and homeless services in Coos and Curry Counties.  Assessments are conducted by trained assessors and require a minimum of 20 minutes per household.  Assessments are generally available on a walk-in basis but are contingent on staff availability.  To ensure availability or to request a reasonable accommodation for transportation challenges, disabilities or language barriers please contact ORCCA’s Coos Bay office at (541) 435-7080 or Brookings office at (541) 469-3155.

Coos Bay Assessment Hours: 

  • Wednesday or Friday from 10:00 A.M. - 1:00 P.M. or 2:00 P.M. – 5:30 P.M 

Brookings Assessment days: 

  • Every other Thursday and Friday from 10:00 A.M. - 1:00 P.M. or 2:00 P.M. – 5:30 P.M
