One of the most promising approaches to ending homelessness, especially among families with children, is rapid re-housing. This means moving families from shelter or emergency situations into housing quickly and creating stability once they are housed. Short-term financial assistance reduces the time families spend in shelter. Follow up assistance in accessing employment and mainstream services, money management, and maintaining housing helps families keep their housing. The fundamental practice wisdom of Rapid Rehousing is that when people are stably housed, everything else in their lives stabilizes.
