Housing is the first step in building stronger children, families and communities. We prevent homelessness by giving families the skills and education that lead to self-sufficiency. Since 1989, we have served more than 1,700 homeless families.
Rapid Re-Housing Services
Flagler Housing & Homeless Services provides rapid re-housing assistance to homeless families of all compositions. Rapid re-housing helps homeless families and individuals obtain permanent rental housing as quickly as possible with integrated support services based on need. Such services include: case management; linking families to community resources; employment training; budgeting assistance; and education around tenant responsibilities.
According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, rapid re-housing reduces the length of time people remain in homeless shelters in addition to associated public and personal costs.
Rapid re-housing sees high success rates because it solves a homeless family’s most urgent and basic need first: housing stability. After housing is obtained, case managers can more easily address the factors that led to the family’s homelessness.
Families may receive services for a little as three months or as long as 24 months, depending on need. Families may also receive short-term rental assistance. All families must register at the Homeless Point of Entry for referrals.
Please call 804-553-3258 to speak with a Villa staff member or leave a message for more information. All calls will be returned.
