In June 2020, Central Iowa Shelter & Services founded the Rolling Hills Coalition. The program began in response to the realization that people experiencing homelessness were leaving their communities to seek services in Des Moines.
With the Rolling Hills Coalition, people do not have to leave home to find housing.
The RHC helps individuals in eligible counties search for housing in their area and assists with the deposit, first month’s rent, and a landlord mitigation fund. Additional efforts, like Point in Time (PIT), are being organized to showcase prevalence and promote awareness.
Currently, the coalition is working to establish a coordinated entry system in RHC’s 15 county service area.
CISS provides coordinated entry services to individuals in eligible counties through Iowa Housing Help (IHH). To fill out the form or learn more about IHH assistance, visit iowahousinghelp.com.
We also offer the following services:
- Short-term Case Management
- Street Outreach
- Point-in-Time (PIT)
- Coordinated Entry
- Rapid Rehousing Assistance
CISS provides services to Iowans experiencing homelessness in the following 15 counties:
- Van Buren
