Rental Application Assistance for our Clients in Need
Homelessness is a growing problem and, as is usually the case, it is not a chosen way of life for most. Circumstances beyond a person’s control can often have devastating effects, creating unsafe living conditions; and, being unhoused has a huge detrimental effect on one’s mental health. The average cost of a rental application is $40, and many of our clients don’t have extra money for this purpose, therefore remain unhoused, or in poor living conditions.
South Lane Mental Health estimates that every month approximately 15 clients come to us asking for financial assistance for rental applications. We’d like to help every client that comes to us with this need, but as a non-profit we just don’t have the means to do this. We are asking the community to come together in support of your neighbors who need help in this way.
Based on the numbers of clients that make this request each month and the average numbers of applications needing to be filled out if they had the money to do so, we estimate that this need is in the ballpark of $3,600 for one year’s worth of assistance for our clients. The Cottage Grove Presbyterian Church has stepped up to partially fill this need – Thank you CGPC! – and we are hopeful that other local organizations and individuals will do the same. If 45 individuals give $40 each, we will reach this goal. Thank you in advance for your support, and please click below to donate:


The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number is now 988. 
The old number, available 24 hours a day in English and Spanish is still operable as well: 800-273-8255.
In the fall of 2020, the National Suicide Hotline Designation Act was passed by Congress establishing 988 as a three-digit nationwide mental health and suicidal crisis number. For more information, click here: https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/current-events/the-lifeline-and-988/

The staff at South Lane Mental Health seek to promote equity and inclusion within our agency as well as the larger Cottage Grove Community. Our hearts go out to members of our community that have been impacted directly or indirectly by recent and historic violence against people of color. We believe that black lives matter, and we support those that seek justice and equity for all.  The pain, frustration, and emotional toll that communities of color continually endure due to systemic racism add to existing disparities.

The time is now for all of us to work together to build stronger communities, address social, health, and economic disparities, and to heal the divisions in our society.  We call on all community members, especially those in leadership roles, to model compassion and strive for constructive solutions.
