MILC’s Solutions to End Homelessness Program (STEHP) was created to assist households that have been identified as at-risk, and without some form of assistance – would experience homelessness in St. Lawrence County, NY. STEHP is a program to transition participants to housing stability – either through their own means or through public assistance as appropriate.

Eligible Populations fall within two categories: At-Risk of Homelessness or Literally Homeless:

At Risk of Homelessness

An At-Risk of Homelessness individual is someone that has been identified as being in imminent danger of losing their present housing situation and without assistance would otherwise be homeless.

Literally Homeless

A Literally Homeless individual is someone who is living in a public or private place not designed for, or ordinarily used as, a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings.

 

All STEHP applicants will also be screened for income eligibility. Household income must fall within 30% of the poverty level.
