Requesting Connection Services
Santa Cruz County’s Housing for Health Partnership (H4HP) is associated with a variety of services and supports that can help people experiencing homelessness. Despite these connections, there are very limited housing and shelter resources available in Santa Cruz and not everyone seeking a housing resource can immediately receive one. H4HP is funding Connection Services to support eligible people to identify potential resources to help with housing and other needs.
If you are experiencing homelessness and are not working with a Connector yet, or if you are working with someone who is experiencing homelessness, you may complete this request form for Connection Services. The request will allow H4HP to look at the household’s composition and current circumstances to determine whether immediate key supports are available. Everyone that completes the request form will receive a response with resource recommendations based on the needs and circumstances reflected.
This request form can also be used to match and refer to a Connector (a person available to provide Connection Services). Connectors provide in-depth assessments and supports for people experiencing homelessness. Because capacity is limited, not everyone completing this form will be referred to Connector Services. Even though most information on this form is not required, the more information that is provided, the higher the chance of receiving a useful response from H4H staff.
The form is not a coordinated entry Assessment and does not place people on the housing community queue (list) for H4HP-linked housing and service resources. Please provide as much information as possible about how to find you/the person requesting services should resources become available.
