Rapid re-housing is a cost-effective solution to homelessness that involves providing assistance locating new housing, short-term rental assistance, and follow-up case management services. This workshop will highlight communities’ experiences successfully implementing rapid re-housing to respond to family homelessness. Presenters will outline the basic housing and service components involved in the rapid re-housing model and provide examples of the results local communities have achieved in reducing homelessness using this approach.
