Family Stabilization has openings in Rapid Rehousing program
September 19, 2016
Passing along some important and helpful information, the agency’s Family Stabilization Program (FSP) has openings in its Rapid Rehousing program for families that are homeless. Rapid Rehousing is limited assistance with rent and services to help families and individuals that have become homeless due to job loss, accidents, short-term health issues or other crises.
The Family & Children’s Place program provides 12 months of rental assistance and case management to eligible families. To qualify, families must be homeless, with no stable place to go, that are staying in emergency shelters or on the street.
Families seeking the help will need to be assessed by the Louisville Common Assessment team through the Coalition for the Homeless. Common Assessment is not a housing program but may be able to help link families to needed resources.
Applicants will complete a 10- to 15-minute survey about their homelessness, health, and other needs, and under the program, participant families must be willing to participate in case management, be motivated to work toward employment and self-sufficiency quickly and have been homeless for less than a year.
To apply, visit the Louisville Coalition for the Homeless between 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, at 1300 S. Fourth St., second floor, or call 502-637-2080 for an outreach appointment.
