Housing First
By connecting people with a home, they are in a better position to address
other challenges that may have led to their homelessness, such as obtaining
employment or addressing substance abuse issues. The intervention has also
been effective for people traditionally perceived to be more difficult to serve,
including people with limited or no income.
#1: Housing Identification
The goal of housing identification is to find housing for people quickly. This
can be a challenging task, especially in high-cost, low-vacancy markets.
HFOL will recruit landlords continuously, even before we have people who
need housing. The more partnerships we create now, the greater the
opportunity we will have later to rapidly house those that need it.
#2: Rent and Move-In Assistance
The goal of rent and move-in assistance is to help with the costs
associated with getting into housing. The amount and duration of this
assistance varies, but at a minimum, it should be enough to help people
secure a place to live within 30 days. This assistance shouldn’t be a standard
“package” but flexible to meet unique needs. This is particularly important
when financial circumstances or housing costs change.
#3: Case Management
The goal is to help stabilize people once housed, by connecting them to
services and supports if needed. It should focus on helping people navigate
barriers that may stand in the way of securing and maintaining housing and
should also strive to build a support system by connecting them with people
and programs in the community.
Rapid re-housing assistance should end and the case closed when the
individual or family is no longer facing the threat of homelessness, but case
management may continue if appropriate or requested.
