Since November of 2016, dozens of homeless families and individuals have moved from homeless shelters into permanent housing thanks to our Rapid Rehousing Program. Our Landlord Liaison develops relationships with local landlords and helps clients from Beacon House, Sojourner House, Western Dairyland Homeless Shelters and elsewhere move into apartments of their own.
In most cases, rapid rehousing assistance is offered without preconditions – many issues such as employment, income, criminal records and sobriety will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and do not automatically disqualify anyone from participating in the program. Resources and services are tailored to the unique needs of the household.
The goal of the program is to move homeless families and individuals into permanent housing as quickly as possible.
