Rapid Re-Housing

Circulo de la Hispanidad has two Rapid Re-Housing Programs:

Casa Salva and Casa de la Paz

Both programs provides rapid re-housing assistance to homeless survivors of violence and their families fleeing from abusive relationships.  TProgrms assists individuals to secure housing and provide a rent subsidy for a time-limited basis. The goal of the programs is to help individuals achieve housing stability and self-sufficiency.

Rapid Rehousing quickly connects families and individuals experiencing homelessness to permanent housing through a tailored package of assistance that may include the use of time-limited financial assistance and targeted supportive services. Rapid Rehousing is a progressive rental assistance program.  Participants pay rent monthly and each month this share increases with the goal that participants pay full rent upon program completion.  Rapid rehousing is recommended for individuals who need time based progressive rental assistance to help them achieve and maintain housing stability and self-sufficiency.
