This video is a recording of a webinar that originally streamed on Tuesday, March 10, 2015, that highlighted the rapid re-housing strategies of Mercer County (Trenton), NJ and Los Angeles. During the webinar leaders from these communities discussed how they have significantly expanded their capacity to rapidly re-house families. The speakers also highlighted the strategies they used to develop a coordinated entry system, expand rapid re-housing, lessons learned along the way, and the impact the shift has made in their larger homeless service system.
This resource examines the role of long-term, congregate transitional housing in ending homelessness.

With this speech, Nan Roman, Alliance President and CEO, addressed Supportive Service for Veterans Families (SSVF) “surge” grantees from across the country in December 2014. The SSVF “surge” grantees received approximately $200 million in one-time funding to provide rapid re-housing and prevention assistance to veteran households.
This infographic is meant to serve as a visual aid for educating partners and other interested parties about the core components of rapid re-housing.
