St. Catherine of Siena
We have no specific hotel policy. We have conference guidelines on how much a case worker can commit to a client without full conference approval. Some clients are living long term in the extended stay hotels in our area and yet some are weekly. We usually give at least 1 weeks rent, enough to give the clients some time to find other assistance. In other words 1 week up to a maximum of 1 month.
We do support Hotel/motel rents but to a limited degree. We are about the only church in our area that supports this need. Normally our guidelines provide 2-3 nights at a motel. In extreme circumstances, we may do a week. Our monthly budget for hotels/motel is $1500. Once we hit that number, we do not accept new applications until the 1st of the following month.

SJN will pay extended stays or hotels if they were evicted and lived in our territory before being evicted.
