HHH is designed to assist people who are at risk of eviction, people who have difficulty finding housing. The HHH team believes strongly in collaboration and communication among agency partners to ensure supports provided to individuals are efficiently coordinated and respectfully provided. HHH also works hard to build positive relationships with landlords to support them in providing tenancy to individuals working with the project and to mediate problems that may arise to prevent the need for eviction.
