The LifeMoves | Rapid Re-Housing program helps clients who are homeless but have a reliable income to receive move-in assistance and shallow rent subsidies.
By providing financial assistance to move directly into housing (accompanied by case management and supportive services), clients are able to bypass a stay in an interim housing program altogether. This program is fiscally efficient from an organizational standpoint and also circumvents the psychological impact on our clients of short-term housing solutions, which can be particularly devastating for children.
Additionally, the LifeMoves | Rapid Re-Housing program helps preserve urgently needed shelter beds for those most in need.
To qualify for LifeMoves | Rapid Re-Housing, clients must be homeless, working or gaining reliable income, but earning less than 200% of the national poverty level. Families and individuals may receive up to $2,000 for move-in assistance, depending on income, and a 50% rent subsidy for up to six months. After securing stable housing, clients receive follow-up case management to ensure their long-term success.
