Housing Services and Support

Mariposa County is not unlike other counties in California concerning the need for affordable housing. We work closely with other community partners in seeking the best possible housing outcomes.

Housing Services and Support (HSS) seeks to identify and assist those individuals and families residing within the county currently or in imminent danger of becoming homeless to provide housing opportunities and support services for such persons. We serve those residing in both unsheltered as well as substandard sheltered living environments. We also assist in sustaining long-term housing placement through linkage and referral to various available support services, including individual case management. Resources on this page are organized into the following three sections:

Landlord Partnership Program

This program seeks to increase the number of rentals in Mariposa County for long-term rentals.

Supportive and Homeless Services

This section includes information for the Connections Emergency Shelter, The Mariposa Heritage House, and Food Resources.


This section includes resources for those who wish to apply for housing choice vouchers, locate rent-subsidized apartments, Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Weatherization Program, and additional housing resources.
