Family Rapid Re-housing

Business hours: Call for appointment Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

The Family Rapid Re-housing (FRRH) program assists families with children, to quickly end their episode of homelessness. We help families obtain safe, secure, and stable housing, so they can achieve self-sufficiency and successfully graduate from the FRRH program.

Each family participating in the program is assigned a case manager.  The case manager works with the family to develop a Housing and Stability Service Plan.  This strengths-based plan focuses on tasks the case manager and family will address together, and determines the type of assistance the family needs to regain and maintain stable housing.  The plan also works to reduce any barriers that might lead to future episodes of homelessness.

The case manager and the family complete various assessment tools to identify the family’s strengths and barriers to maintaining and sustaining permanent housing. The case manager partners with the family to develop and/or refine success in areas such as: employment, budgeting, education, parenting, communication skills, resume development, vocational training, healthy relationship building, family-planning, and self-esteem.

Applications for the FRRH program are now being accepted. FRRH is a Tenant-Based Rental Assistance program.
