Rapid re-housing is an approach to homeless service delivery that helps families and individuals access housing as quickly as possible. Once a family or individual is housed, then supportive services are wrapped around them to help them maintain housing stability.
Our Work on Rapid Re-Housing
Through the generous support of the Freddie Mac Foundation, VCEH is part of a public-private partnership with the Commonwealth of Virginia and the National Alliance to End Homelessness to shift practice and policy to rapid re-housing to reduce family homelessness in Virginia. This initiative was announced by Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell at the 2011 Governors Housing Conference.
