The HEARTH Act, Opening Doors: The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness, and many communities’ ten year plans to end homelessness
all outline rapid re–housing as a key strategy for ending homelessness. This workshop will introduce the concepts and strategies for implementing a rapid
re–housing model from the program level, including examples of organizations that have shifted from a transitional housing model to a rapid re–housing model.
