In September 2016, the National Alliance to End Homelessness convened nearly 100 rapid re-housing (RRH) champions from around the country to develop a common vision about how we can advance RRH and discuss emerging knowledge, research and practice on the model.
What we heard resoundingly is that RRH continues to be a primary solution for ending homelessness. It has been demonstrated to be effective in getting households into permanent housing and keeping them there.
Ramping up RRH would increase the number of people we can serve, thus reducing the overall numbers of people experiencing homelessness. And while we know RRH is increasing in places around the country, there is a need to scale up the intervention in a coordinated manner and at the systems level in order to truly address homelessness on a broader scale.
