Since November of 2016, hundreds of homeless families and individuals have moved from homeless shelters into permanent housing thanks to our Rapid Rehousing Program. Our Rapid Rehousing case managers develop relationships with area landlords and help clients that are on the Coordinated Entry Prioritization List move into apartments of their own.
Rapid re-housing rapidly connects families and individuals experiencing homelessness to permanent housing through a tailored package of assistance that may include the use of time-limited financial assistance and targeted supportive services.
In order to qualify for rapid re-housing, homeless families or individuals (Cat. 1) or those that are fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking or other dangerous or life-threatening conditions (Cat. 4) are required to go through the Coordinated Entry process.
