Clients enrolled in the voluntary 60+ Representative Payeeship Program receive assistance in managing their finances. This service prevents homelessness by ensuring monthly bills are paid on behalf of a client to assure shelter, food, and clothing needs are met. Clients referred to the program are individuals identified as having difficulty with budgeting their monthly income. In many cases, they need help with paying rent, utilities, and other basic necessities due to mental illness, exploitation, addictions to drugs, alcohol, and/or gambling. Additionally, services may be sought for individuals who may have visual limitations or an inability to read or write.
