Rapid Rehousing

“To eliminate homelessness, put people in housing”

The Community Shelter is committed to not only providing emergency shelter for single adults and families, but also to help stabilize the homeless into permanent housing. Clients first enter our adult shelter program or our family motel program. If appropriate, clients work closely with both a case manager and a housing coordinator to develop an affordable housing plan and the means to support that housing plan long term including employment, health issues, budgeting, etc.

Our housing coordinator is always on the lookout to meet new landlords and evaluate the appropriateness of vacant properties that may fit a client’s needs. She arranges meetings with the clients and landlords so that everyone understands their responsibilities and the common goal of stabilizing long term housing for the client and their family.
