Rapid Re-Housing

Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) provides short-term rental and utility assistance with intensive case management services to households currently experiencing a homeless episode. Program participants meet with Case Managers at a minimum of once per month and potentially more, depending upon their needs.

The Community Action of Fayette County Rapid Re-Housing program provides direct case management services to participants in the counties of Fayette, Highland and Pickaway. RRH assists households currently experiencing homelessness, working with them to resolve their housing crisis as quickly as possible. RRH has a 21 day housing goal, which is achieved through active participation from eligible participants and their RRH case manager. Through this active participation and case management support, families are able to obtain housing stability and address the barriers that have prevented them from maintaining their own housing in the past.
