Housing Assistance Program

Rapid Rehousing addresses the needs of those coming out of homelessness to help cover expenses such as rental deposits, utility hookups, and moving costs.

ECHO’s newest program, Rapid Rehousing, is operated in part through local funding and a federal housing assistance program.  Through a sound screening process and intensive case management process, we work with individuals who earn an income to identify affordable permanent housing options and establish budget thresholds to meet their ongoing living obligations while relieving them of the initial, up-front charges that are often hurdles to self-sufficiency.
