• Description

These slides are from our 2016 national conference, A Nation That Works: What's It Going to Take? Rapid re-housing provides people experiencing homelessness with temporary financial assistance and tailored services to support their exit from homelessness into permanent housing. Research shows, and program providers confirm, that many people served by rapid re-housing face significant barriers to employment. As this intervention comes to scale, rapid re-housing providers are recognizing that their participants need robust employment and training services and supports in order to improve their economic situations and maintain housing on their own following program exit. In this session, hear best and promising practices in designing and delivering employment services for rapid re-housing participants. The session will highlight the work of providers who are successfully integrating employment and training strategies into their rapid re-housing programs.
