The goal of our Rapid Re-Housing is to help our clients who are experiencing homelessnes find appropriate housing and additional help to overcome barriers to housing instability and achieve financial independence and become contributing members to our Broome and Chenango County communities.
Rapid Re-Housing is an intervention, informed by a Housing First approach that is a critical part of a community’s effective homeless crisis response system. Although Greater Opportunities, Inc focuses its services on two counties (Broome and Chenango), this program is offered in additional counties in Upstate New York including Cortland, Delaware, Otsego, and Tioga.
Rapid Re-Housing rapidly connects families and individuals experiencing homelessness to permanent housing through a tailored package of assistance that may include the use of time-limited financial assistance and targeted supportive services.
Homeless individuals and families residing in a place not meant for human habitation, residing in a shelter or hotel/motel paid by charitable organizations or federal/state/local government programs, or exiting an institution where he/she has resided in 90 days or less and who was homeless at point of entry.
