Housing is the first step to building stronger children, families, and communities.

We end homelessness for individuals and families by providing access to housing, and the support needed to remain housed.

Rapid Re-Housing Services

Flagler Housing and Homeless Services provides community-based rapid rehousing assistance to families, single individuals, youth and veterans experiencing homelessness in the Greater Richmond and Tri-Cities regions. Rapid rehousing helps households obtain safe and affordable rental housing as quickly as possible, while presenting viable resources to maintain housing. Support services including case management, connection to community resources, budgeting assistance, short-term financial assistance, and education around tenant responsibilities are provided based on client need and preference.

Households participating in rapid rehousing see high success rates because it solves the most urgent and basic need of housing first. After housing is obtained, case managers can more easily work with the household to maintain housing.

The process of accessing services varies depending on area of residence.
