The LRM "Homeless Prevention Assistance" program is designed to help families avoid becoming homeless.
Through grants and generous donations received, Lazarus Restoration Ministries is sometimes able to help families pay their rent, mortgage and utility payments that, if left unpaid, would cause them to become homeless. This program is offered on a first come first served basis, but only when funds are available.
In order to fully qualify for assistance from this program, the applicant must meet the following criteria:
1. Be currently housed in Alachua County.
2. Have verifiable steady income.
3. Have a verifiable need for assistance.
