The Neighbor Center Housing Programs Grants need funds!

Released inmates face multiple hardships and barriers for successfully transitioning back to the community. To make the transition, it is essential to have housing and income.

The Neighbor Center has been awarded two grants to help the recently released inmates get adequate housing :

  • HUD Continuum of Care (CoC) Grant provides temporary housing while case management helps recently released inmates to find jobs and permanent housing.
  • Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) provides funds for rapid rehousing and homeless prevention assistance for released inmates. Those eligible will receive assistance with arrears, up to 3 months for rent, utilities and case management to secure adequate income for housing stability.

Click button "Donate Now" below to help the recently released inmates secure housing and financial stability.

Since in the late 70's, MAIC has been serving the Mobile area community throughout hurricanes, economic downturns, and personal crises/needs.

Of late, much MAIC energy has been devoted to those housed in the Mobile Metro Jail. The development of a robust GED program within the walls of Mobile Metro Jail is particularly gratifying.

Requests for services and referrals can be initiated by contacting The Neighbor Center. Contacts and services are provided confidentially.
