The Fayette Co. Rapid Re-Housing program provides direct case management services to participants in the counties of Fayette and Highland and helps families experiencing homelessness quickly move out of shelter or off the streets. Through active case management, participants move into homes of their own and begin to address the barriers that have prevented them from maintaining their own housing in the past.
Rapid Re-Housing provides short-term rental and utility assistance with intensive case management services. Program participants meet with Case Managers at a minimum of once per month and potentially more, depending upon their needs.
- Short Term Rental Assistance
- Housing stability focused case management
