Rapid Re-Housing Services for Families Program
LightHouse Social Service Centers' Rapid Re-Housing for Families Program provides rapid re-housing services to homeless families residing in Riverside County, California. The Rapid Re-Housing model of housing assistance moves homeless families into permanent housing as quickly as possible and provides support services to assist those families in achieving and maintaining housing stability. The program provides tenant-based rental assistance to 12 families within a 12-month time period in scattered-site housing in Riverside County. Rapid Re-Housing services are provided utilizing a “Housing First” approach which identifies housing stability as the primary issue facing the homeless family and works to quickly place the family into permanent housing.
This program works with families who are literally homeless and accepts referrals for clients who are living in places not meant for human habitation or clients residing in emergency shelter programs.
