Does an APS worker locate housing for the homeless or individuals being evicted from their homes?

Adult Protective Services does not have the resources to locate independent housing for elderly or dependent adults who are being evicted or are already homeless. APS can assess the client for out of home care in a board and care home, assisted living, etc. and try to facilitate placement. APS also makes referrals to agencies which assist clients with emergency housing, referrals to shelters, to the Napa Housing Authority, and other organizations serving the homeless, including the homeless coordinator. For further information, contact us at 707-253-4398.
