As part of the community’s efforts to eliminate homelessness, a Rapid Rehousing approach is being used more and more to quickly move households from homelessness to stable permanent housing. The Rapid Rehousing Partnership Program provides the needed support for both the households moving into permanent housing and the landlords who are renting units for our clients.

This workshop is interactive; time is available to answer any questions you may have!
