ESG offers emergency assistance through Rapid Re-Housing and Homeless Prevention services to address homelessness. Rapid Re-Housing helps a homeless individual or homeless family move as quickly as possible into permanent housing and achieve stability in that housing. Homeless Prevention services are available to individuals at risk of homelessness.
In addition to the five counties HRDC serves, ESG administers assistance to Carter, Custer, Fallon, Powder River, Rosebud and Treasure.
