The Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded the City supplemental Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV) funds to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19. With a portion of the funds, the City hired Family Assistance Ministries and South County Outreach to provide homeless prevention services for Aliso Viejo residents.
South County Outreach (SCO) will provide services to Aliso Viejo residents, including hunger prevention through our Food Pantry, where clients facing food insecurity as a result of the pandemic can specify their food need based on dietary restrictions and preference. Additionally, rental assistance will be provided to help households affected by COVID-19 prevent eviction, eliminating the threat of homelessness, and utility assistance to prevent disconnection of vital services.
