Grant Funding for Storage of Personal Belongings Available for Select Clients of Participating Agencies

Akron, OH – December 16, 2016:  Community & Family Storage, LLC. announces it will be accepting vouchers from the Summit County Job & Family Services Prevention, Retention, and Contingency (PRC) PLAN for payment of storage units for eligible clients to store household and personal belongings. 

The grant provides for up to four months of storage plus transportation service fees (both in and out) for approved PRC clients as part of their grant allowance.  There are eight agencies able to apply for a grant on behalf of their clients: Community Support Services, Family Promise of Summit County, Battered Women’s Shelter of Summit & Medina Counties, H.M. Life Opportunity Services, Salvation Army, Valor Home, ACCESS, Inc., and Harvest Home. 

The loss of personal belongings when someone finds themselves suddenly without a home can be as traumatic as the loss of the location itself, especially those with young children.  Storage units can hold some appliances, small home furnishings and personal belongings.  Once the client is back into a home environment, their belongings are then brought back to the home.

Arrangements can be made through the agencies listed above. Clients of one of the above listed agencies should contact their case manager to determine eligibility. The Case Manager will contact Community & Family Storage during normal business hours to arrange for a storage container.  Funding will apply for four (4) consecutive months. 

At the end of the four (4) month contract time, the client may continue rental of the storage container at their own expense.  PRC Grant Funding will also provide for transportation of the items to and from the units by an approved local carrier.  Community & Family Storage will have information to contact the moving company.

To determine eligibility for your client, visit the Summit County PRC Guidelines website at https://www.summitdjfs.org/services/prevention-retention-and-contingency.html  and the program details at http://jfs.ohio.gov/OWF/prc/county/SummitCountyPRC.pdf .  Then contact Community & Family Storage at 330-535-1754 during normal business hours to arrange for a storage container.

Summer will be upon us in a short time and college kids will be heading home for the holiday.  There's a better alternative to them bringing home all their dorm room stuff...store it near campus and all they need to do is pick it up on their way back to school in August.
