What we do
The Coalition provides stable services to the Southern Indiana community by creating programs that fill the gaps in currently existing services or processes. The Coalition works hard with other agencies, local businesses and city officials to recognize a need, and build a program to meet that need. Currently, we have 4 existing programs that have stemmed from this process:
Eviction Prevention Program
This program meets the needs of those who are unable to pay for their rent due to circumstances beyond their control including COVID-19 . Case managers work directly with clients and community agencies to eliminate barriers to ensure that they received rental assistance quickly in order to prevent evictions.
Eviction prevention helps with:
Late Rent, Covid-19 Related Rent Forgiveness, Rehousing after eviction, Landlord Engagement, Utility Payments, Move-in fees, Late Rent
is a sub service of Eviction Prevention and works to help spread the importance of affordable housing to local Landlords.
Clients can fill out the intake assessment at stopmyevictionsoin.org or call 812-202-6589
We understand at times that individuals may not know where to go, how to receive, or qualify for services. Through Service Coordination we are able to connect individuals to community resources and provide short term case management until either needs are met or an appropriate program is identified.
Service Coordination is for anyone that needs help. If you are unsure about how to get a new ID, how to qualify for Government Food Assistance, how to to register for Government Phone Service, or Government Utility assistance - we have you covered.
Clients can call 812-202-6589 or send us an email and we will get back with you within 24 hours.
Did you know that at any given time in Southern Indiana there are over
10 homeless camps? Our street outreach program strives to make a connection with those who are unsheltered to develop a relationship with those who may be fearful or services or service providers.
Our goal is to identify barriers, provide services and ensure basic needs are met. If you know of a camp or a homeless individual in need please contact 812-202-6589 or fill out the form - this may remain anonymous.
White Flag Shelter
When the weather gets below 35 degrees between November 15-April 15 our White Flag shelter opens in order to keep the unsheltered homeless warm and safe. While we may be warm and snuggling into our beds during the winter times, there is a 100% chance that someone in our city is without such privilege. The White Flag Shelter program is an absolute necessity for keeping those less fortunate:
Warm & Safe.
For the 2020/2021 season we served over 959 guests and shelter for 68 days. Have you ever seen someone that was Homeless, and wished you could do more. Well, we are always looking for volunteers - now is your chance. We will provide training, you just provide the heart.
