Rapid Re-Housing Learning Collaborative Toolkit

Toolkits  |  March 31, 2017

This toolkit provides a framework for a facilitated peer learning group focused on improving rapid re-housing practice. It includes sample materials, insights from former Learning Collaborative participants, and tips collected from the Alliance’s Learning Collaborative held in Virginia.

The Learning Collaborative is broken into seven phases. Under each goal are priorities that will further guide RRH implementation, and suggestions for achieving these priorities.

TOOLKIT:

Rapid re-housing (RRH) is an intervention designed to help individuals and families quickly exit homelessness and return to permanent housing. RRH assistance is offered without preconditions, such as employment, income, absence of criminal record, or sobriety. The resources and services provided in RRH are tailored to the unique needs of the household.

RRH represents a fundamentally different way of doing business for many homeless service providers. The RRH Learning Collaborative model helps providers move from traditional shelter or transitional housing program models to a flexible, client-driven RRH model. The Learning Collaborative is a forum for service providers to make changes in the way they operate, while receiving support from their peers and RRH experts.
