UMOM tracked a large number of households enrolled in rapid re-housing services from 2010 to 2015, and as October 2015, 93% of those identified households had not re-entered emergency shelter services.
UMOM New Day Centers has been able to document that for a large sample of families participating in the agency’s rapid re-housing program only 7% re-entered emergency shelter services during a span of more than 5 years.
Interventions for individuals and families experiencing homelessness vary in type, length and intensity. For providers, identifying those programs that result in the best chance for stable, permanent housing is critical. One such program available is rapid re-housing. To understand the impact of rapid re-housing services, UMOM tracked a large number of households enrolled in rapid re-housing through both their agency and subcontractors from 2010 to 2015. As of October 2015, 93% of those identified households had not re-entered the system.
With this kind of success, it begs the question, what is happening in Maricopa County? And even more important to providers across the state and nationally, what can we learn and how can this work be replicated and expanded?
