Rapid Rehousing is an evidence-based approach to end homelessness as quickly as possible for families and individuals. This program uses targeted financial assistance and short-term services to quickly return individuals and families who slipped into homelessness back into housing and stability. This program also utilizes “Housing First” where the thought is that people are more likely to be successful when they are no longer in a stressful crisis situation so they are stably housed first and then they are connected to any additional services that they might need.
The Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program works with individuals and families that are aged 18-24 who are homeless or in jeopardy of being homeless. This program will assist with case management to stabilize the youth to prevent homelessness. If the youth is already homeless, they may (if qualified) be placed in the YHDP/RRH Program.
YHDP Rapid Rehousing Program is for youth who came through the CAN and need RRH services to further stabilize their homeless situation. The youth will be followed by case management to stabilize a permanent housing solution. In this program, the youth are encouraged to explore job training and educational opportunities.
