Subject to available funding
ECHO provides vouchers to a local motel, when funds are available. Due to high need in the community, we sometimes have a wait list.
Everyone will have to take a 15-minute survey to determine their level of need. Families with a higher level of need will be placed higher on the list.
We cannot assist with emergency lodging when the funds run out. Anyone with open criminal cases, commitments, bench warrants, or other significant charges will have to get those cases resolved before we can help.
If we cannot help you or we are out of funding, please call 2-1-1 to see if there are any other shelters or emergency lodging programs available.
