This suite of tools and products on Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) for Youth includes a Jump Start Tool, a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), and a Checklist. Coming soon will be a Toolkit.
- The Jump Start Tool provides an overview of the key steps Continuums of Care (CoCs) and providers can take to quickly develop RRH projects for youth. The tool includes descriptions of RRH project strategies that incorporate the core components of housing identification, rent and move-in assistance, case management, and services.
- The FAQs cover topics such as landlords renting to youth, working to support negative experiences with a tenant, ensuring staff will be a good fit for RRH, and whether RRH is developmentally appropriate for youth.
- The Checklist will help CoCs and RRH project providers plan and implement RRH projects for youth. It incorporates system level needs, program design, and youth engagement.
- Coming Soon: The Rapid Re-Housing for Youth toolkit provides community examples for the core components of RRH projects. Community examples include resources on recruiting and retaining landlords, finding and securing appropriate rental housing, housing stabilization plans, case management tools, and trauma-informed, housing first, and progressive engagement approaches.
