The Data Snapshot provides an overview of 2015 research into the effectiveness of rapid re-housing. Seventy-three percent (73%) of people tracked for the study who were rapidly re-housed exited to permanent housing.
The primary measures of success are:
Help households quickly exit homelessness; Increase the number of households exiting to permanent housing;
Prevent households from returning to homelessness;
Increase a household’s self sufficiency; and
Decrease homelessness overall.
The resource includes data from the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s “Short-term Impacts from the Family Options Study.”
