ECHO’s Homelessness Prevention program provides payment of one month’s rent or mortgage for Leon County residents and is operated in part through local funding from the United Way of the Big Bend.  Through stability counseling and intensive case management, we work with working individuals and families who earn an income to identify affordable permanent housing options and establish budget thresholds to meet their ongoing living obligations.
