Homeless Prevention Program

The City of Hinesville Homeless Prevention Program (HPP) is a federally and locally funded program whose mission is to prevent homelessness through collaboration, education, financial literacy, case management and empowerment. We are here to help households work toward self-sufficiency.

The program administers two service programs and makes referrals to other resources. Please view Homeless and Housed Client Services options at left menu for information on current programs.
