RAPID RE-HOUSING
Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) is an intervention, informed by a Housing First approach that is a critical part of a community’s effective homeless crisis response system. RRH rapidly connects families and individuals experien-
cing homelessness to permanent housing through a tailored package of assistance that may include the use of time-limited financial assistance 
and targeted supportive services. RRH programs help families and indivi-
duals living on the streets or in emergency shelters solve the practical and immediate challenges to obtaining permanent housing while reducing the amount of time they experience homelessness, avoiding a near-term return 
to homelessness, and linking to community resources that enable them to 
achieve housing stability in the long-term.  
All shelter spaces in Washtenaw County are filled by Housing Access 
(see top of County listing).
