Marion County Homeless Council, Inc works in unison with other community providers to rapidly rehouse homeless individuals, and assisting other households to remain in housing. Though a small organization, we make a big impact in our community. Between January 1, 2020 and September 30, 2020, our two direct care staff members financially assisted 148 households consisting of 356 individuals. This assistance is made possible through grants from HUD, DCF and United Way of Marion County.
As we strive to serve more members of our community, we find ourselves in need of additional dollars. These dollars help keep the agency functioning and covers expenses related to operating the services, maintaining the data and providing reports to our grant funders.
If you are interested in donating to our agency, you may do so directly or by using the participating in the Give4Marion virtual fundraiser on October 20, 2020.

Do you know someone struggling to make it pay day to pay day? Life's little mishaps play havoc when every dime in your budget dedicated to a bill. A higher utility bill, increase in gas prices, illness, medical co pays or even a flat tire can put even the most hard working parent at risk of losing their home. Marion County Homeless Council is dedicated to working with low income individuals and families to be able to get or keep housing . With two case managers overseeing 6 different grants, our agency has surpassed the number to be served in our grant contracts. Through the use of volunteer and paid staff, the Marion County Homeless Council has served this community well and the results show as counts of homeless have significantly decreased over the past five years. This increase is in part due to the services we provide, the partnerships among the agencies helping homeless, and the collaborative work to improve processes which in turn improve outcomes.
