Rapid rehousing programs are reducing the length of time people reside in shelter before returning to housing in the community. This introductory workshop will provide an overview of the rapid rehousing approach for practitioners and local policymakers who are new to the model. Housing search, landlord negotiation, rental assistance, access to employment, and home-based case management service strategies will be reviewed.
