The Diversion Program extends the possibilities of assisting people in need. Diversion prevents homelessness through advocating and helping people identify alternate housing arrangements and, if necessary, connecting them with services and financial assistance to help them secure permanent housing. Diversion programs can reduce the number of families becoming homeless by focusing on immediate resources available in the community.
