BH-0500.3140Homelessness Prevention Programs Definition
Programs that provide financial assistance and supportive services that stabilize households in their current housing or help them to move into new housing without first entering the shelter system or experiencing homelessness. Services may include financial assistance (short or medium-term rental assistance, security or utility deposits, utility payments, moving cost assistance), housing relocation and stabilization services, legal assistance (generally mediation), credit counseling and case management. The goal is to help households resolve their crisis, secure short-term financial or rental assistance as needed, and access ongoing sources of support in the community in order to remain housed. If the individual or family is unable to stay in their existing housing, the prevention program helps the household to find an alternative housing arrangement that is safe, reasonably affordable and adequate.

YF-5000.3300-220Compulsive Hoarding Definition
A pattern of behavior that is characterized by the excessive collection of possessions (often items of little value to others such as old newspapers, containers and clothing that may someday be "useful") coupled with the inability to discard and/or properly organize them creating a messy, sometimes unsanitary environment that, in extreme cases, no longer functions as a viable living space. When these behaviors are combined with severe self-neglect and hostility to the outside world, Diogenes syndrome (also known as senile squalor syndrome) may be the proper diagnosis.
