A recent article by the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH) cited Virginia as a model state in implementing rapid re-housing. From 2010 to 2014, Virginia reduced the number of families experiencing homelessness by 25 percent. NAEH gives a six-point rundown of how community leaders and organizations, including the Villa’s Flagler Housing & Homeless Services, achieved this significant milestone by shifting to the rapid re-housing model.

Rapid re-housing is highly successful in helping families obtain and remain in their homes because it addresses their foremost need of housing stability. To learn more about rapid re-housing, visit our Flagler Housing & Homeless Services web page.
Flagler was one of the first three rapid re-housing providers in the nation to be certified by NAEH. Director of Housing & Homeless Services Kimberly Tucker and Director of Flagler Operations Katina Williams are presenting at NAEH’s conference in Washington D.C. this week on Flagler’s transition to rapid re-housing.
