Virginia Learning Collaborative Rapid Re-Housing Challenge
Other | September 13, 2013
As of December 2, 2013 the Learning Collaborative has housed 249 families
Goal: 740 families
From October 17, 2013 to January 24, 2014, Thirty-three organizations in Virginia are participating in an ambitious initiative called the Rapid Re-Housing Challenge to place as many homeless families as possible in permanent housing in 100 days through rapid re-housing. Rapid re-housing is a proven and cost-effective strategy that has been used by communities across the country to reduce homelessness. It involves helping households move into housing as quickly as possible after they enter the shelter system, and then helping them maintain this housing through the provision of services and short-term financial assistance as needed. Continuums of Care and other supporters are being encouraged to sign a letter of support for the Rapid Re-Housing Challenge. A list of supporters can be found here.
A summary of the progress of the participants as a whole, as well as by the seven regional collaboratives, are below. Questions about the Learning Collaboratives, or the information on this page, should be directed to Anna Blasco.
