The CARES Program (Caring About Resident Economic Self-Sufficiency) introduced the concept of term limits into the public housing and Section 8 programs administered by ECC/HANH.
- The C.A.R.E.S. Program (Caring About Resident Economic Self-Sufficiency) introduced the concept of term limits into the public housing and Section 8 programs administered by ECC/HANH. All residents, except those exempt under the program requirements, will be subject to a 72-month time limit on receiving rental assistance. The second component of the program requires certain individuals to participate in an extensive 24- month case management, supportive services program designed to overcome barriers to becoming self-sufficient.
- In addition to required one-on-one meetings with a Coordinator, CARES staff conducts outreach to engage all residents by continuing communication with flyers, case management, weekly email chain with updates/information among staff and participants, which enable our residents to effectively gain and maintain access to resources that can assist participants in pursuing opportunities in achieving self-sufficiency.
