Housing Services

We believe that everyone deserves a safe place to call home. Unfortunately, many in our community struggle to find affordable housing or have lost their housing. At Community Action Center, we offer a variety of options for people experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity. Our services aim to prevent eviction, overcome crises, and find long-term housing solutions to create stability for individuals, children, and families.

Our team of housing advocates builds trusting relationships with people and offers case management, goal planning, and advocacy with landlords and other professionals.

Whether you’ve received help from us before or you have never reached out, we want you to know that we welcome you and we appreciate how hard it can be to ask for help.

Hillcrest Village

Community Action Center’s Hillcrest Village is a community-centered housing development that brings together a mix of additional emergency shelter, transitional housing, and market rate/workforce housing.

Mobile Home Community Fund

Community Action Center, together with Healthy Community Initiative (HCI) and the Northfield Racial and Ethnic Equity Coalition (NREEC), has created a designated fund for mobile home repairs, rehabilitation costs, and lot rent assistance across Rice County.

Funds are intended to prevent eviction and will be accessed by tenants/participants through CAC as well as the HCI/Growing Up Healthy Mobile Home Rehabilitation Initiative Coordinator. 100% of donations will go toward mobile home repairs/rent assistance, as CAC will provide the staff time and administration for free.

We hope this designated fund will provide a way for community members to stand in solidarity with our neighbors living in mobile home communities who need our support now more than ever.

In partnership with: 

Healthy Community Initiative
Growing Up Healthy
Northfield Racial Ethnic Equity Collaborative
Community Action Center Mobile Home Fund

CAC’s vitality depends on the community — from volunteers to donations to program-specific support — so that we can continue to meet our neighbors’ basic needs.
