Rapid Rehousing

Rapid Re-Housing services target families and individuals who are currently residents of Emergency or Transitional Housing programs. The goal is to enable households to move into permanent housing, either market rate or subsidized, by identifying housing options or working with existing subsidized housing providers and providing the household with the financial assistance and housing stabilization services needed to prevent a return to homelessness.

Referrals are only received through Philadelphia’s Office of Homeless Services.
