Program Description

  Rapid Rehousing

Rapid Rehousing (RRH) is an intervention program designed to help individuals and families to quickly exit homelessness, return to housing in the community, and not become homeless again in the near term. The core components of a rapid rehousing program are housing identification, move-in and rent assistance, and rapid rehousing case management and services. The goal of the program is to help people quickly obtain housing, increase income, and support self-sufficiency to stay housed. Rapid re-housing is offered without any preconditions, such as employment, income, absence of criminal record, or sobriety.

1  The program anticipates an increase in the number of clients served due to increased staff and full development of new programs. While certain RRH programs are funded, they are still in their infancy and finalizing logistics. Once finalized, programs will be able to serve more clients.
2  In FY23, the program exited fewer clients than in the past due to decreased capacity and staff.
3  Career Catchers are working with rapid rehousing providers and hope the employment landscape will soon expand for entry-level workers. Additionally, case managers should have more access to SOAR certification in order to help clients gain social security benefits.
4  Performance has remained relatively stable. The program anticipates Rapid Rehousing providers will become fully staffed such that clients will become more self-sufficient and integrated into the community.
