CCS Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) Program quickly connects families and individuals experiencing homelessness to permanent housing through tailored housing stability plans that may include the use of short term financial assistance and targeted supportive services. Rapid rehousing helps families and individuals living on the streets or in emergency shelters resolve the practical and immediate barriers to obtaining permanent market rate housing while reducing the amount of time they experience homelessness.

Our program has established partnerships community resources and quickly links clients to those services that enable them to achieve housing stability in the long-term. All services are voluntary and housing stability plans are created in partnership with our clients. We are a housing first program, meaning that there are no preconditions that clients must meet before moving into housing. 161 total people exited homelessness to permanent housing through CCS Rapid Re-Housing in 2017.
