A rapid rehousing program to move participants from homeless, to housed, to independence. Participants must have the ability to work or gain income in a few months and move towards self-sufficiency. Our goal is to assist people for 6-9 months after they are housed with a rental subsidy, attaching to long-term supports (behavioral health, employment, treatment, etc.), then graduate them to paying their full rent.
Appropriate candidates will be those who are willing and able to work (not waiting to receive Social Security benefits as the sole source of income) and motivated to change.
