Homelessness can affect anyone at any stage of life. Many people are just a few paychecks away from homelessness, so natural disasters, large unexpected medical expenses, credit problems, and job loss can leave people instantly homeless with limited resources for rebuilding their homes or their lives.
The DMCC Homeless Initiative provides supportive services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness, or at risk of becoming homeless, to help them secure permanent housing. Services include teaching basic money management skills, improving their financial literacy, reviewing credit scores and identifying steps to improve their credit worthiness, assistance with obtaining banking and other financial products, and referrals to other community resources.
The mission of the DMCC Homeless Initiative is to provide individuals and families facing homelessness the financial knowledge and skills that will help lead them to a more secure future.
