COVID-19 RESPONSE

 

WCCH is still open each morning to provide food bags and to serve emergencies.  

We have written grants to four different sources to try to obtain additional money to serve those affected by the quarantine and business shut-downs. 

Please do not leave your home even if your landlord instructs you to do so.  Evictions are not legal during this crisis.  Call the police if threatened or coerced.  Call us at 205-387-7408 for information on rental assistance. 

Veterans

 

WCCH works closely with United Way's Priority Veteran to house veterans in Walker County in a qualified housing unit of their choice.  Priority Veteran pays deposits and first month’s rent.  WCCH and Priority Veteran may work together to resolve documentation issues and old bills as needed to achieve the housing goals of the veteran.

Another Veteran resource is Endeavors which provides veterans permanent housing in Tuscaloosa and Jefferson County.

Children & Families

Single-parent families are given top priority for rent and deposits to gain permanent housing.  We also work with the single mom or dad on a household budget that will sustain housing long term.  In some cases, we will advocate for advancement in a current job or for a job change to provide higher a living wage that will meet the needs of the family.  

WCCH meets with the client monthly to assess the financial health of the family and to access other resources as needed to sustain housing.
