This program is by referral only, and is subject to funding availability; therefore, not all that seek help will receive motel nights. In the event we cannot provide this service, efforts will be made to connect the individual to other community resources.
Families are required to demonstrate that they are actively working on a permanent plan with a community partner agency. Families can only receive aid once each fiscal year. South Antelope Valley Emergency Services provides referrals to community partner agencies, and an effort is always made to connect families in need with other community resources.
We also provide food assistance to families in our Motel Voucher program. Motel voucher families also qualify to receive holiday baskets and back to school supplies for their children as needed.
