The Rolling Hills Coalition
The Rolling Hills Coalition is the Central Iowa Shelter & Services' new initiative and is committed to empowering people experiencing homelessness while streamlining processes to help them stay in their communities, identify and fill gaps while providing hope and growth to all.
The coalition is made up of 15 counties east and southeast of Polk County; Jasper, Poweshiek, Iowa, Warren, Marion, Mahaska, Keokuk, Lucas, Monroe, Wapello, Jefferson, Wayne, Appanoose, Davis, Van Buren. We are trying to coordinate these counties and their resources to make referrals easier for folks as well as prove the need for resources in these counties. We have a new rapid rehousing and prevention program for people experiencing homelessness in these communities, with the potential to help with deposit, rent and utility assistance.
