MAYOR ERIC JACKSON ANNOUNCES INITIATIVE TO HELP SINGLE HOMELESS ADULTS; ADDITIONAL FUNDING FROM HUD FOR HOUSING VOUCHERS

 

Trenton, N.J. — Mayor Eric Jackson today announced the opening of the Coordinated Entry and Assessment Services Center (CEAS Center), an entry point for single, homeless adults to access comprehensive services. The CEAS Center is a partnership between the City of Trenton, Mercer County Executive Brian Hughes and the Mercer Alliance to End Homelessness.

 

"The purpose of the CEAS Center is to end homelessness for single adults whose permanent housing needs are not typically addressed as quickly as they are for families," said Mayor Jackson. "We could not get this done without the support of Mercer County Executive Brian Hughes, his staff and the Mercer Alliance to End Homelessness."

 

Located at 509 Perry Street, CEAS Center is operated by the city's Department of Health and Human Services - Division of Community Relations and Social Services. CEAS Center staff will assess the level of need for homeless individuals, including providing assistance in applying for SSI benefits, obtaining identification and connecting clients with other nonprofit social-services providers. The center will also provide on-site health care services.

 

Additionally, the city was awarded a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to continue the funding of housing vouchers for chronically homeless women and families.
