Applications are being accepted for the keeping people housed program.

It’s a program offered by the Sunshine Coast Community Services. And it intends to help individuals or families who are facing an unexpected financial crisis.

“The program is designed to help people who are low-income,” said Andrea Hobbs.

“If you’re faced with an unexpected financial crisis such as loss of a job or a sudden illness where you’re not able to pay their rent or utility bill, this program can help.”
The loan would be interest-free and a family can get up to $1800 dollars.

Hobbs also said you can contact her to apply for this program and two people have already been accepted.

Or you can drop by the office in Sechelt in person.
