How Does Rapid Re-housing Work?

December 13, 2016

The National Alliance to End Homelessness reports on how Salt Lake City’s Rapid Re – Housing works, and the progress of the program.

“By coming together and centralizing the administration of the Salt Lake County Rapid Re-Housing program at The Road Home, we were able to grow capacity in landlord relationships, management of multiple funding sources, and the operations of the eligibility process and rent payments. This allowed us to have consistency in how the program was functioning and in our reporting. A solid referral process provided all agencies serving homeless families to access rapid re-housing. This systematic approach allowed us to serve all families without needing additional shelter during the economic recession and maintain an 85% success rate during those challenging years.” – Naehblog, The National Alliance To End Homelessness, December 13, 2016
