Rapid Rehousing

The Rapid Rehousing Program is a collaborative effort among three local organizations: the YWCA Madison, the Salvation ArmyThe Road Home Dane County and the United Way of Dane County. It serves homeless families who are Dane County residents. Rapid Rehousing is a six-month program providing families with rent assistance and supportive case management services. The Rapid Rehousing Program follows the Housing First model, which has been extremely successful in other communities. Housing First programs incorporate a set of interventions to help families move more rapidly out of the shelter system (or avoid shelter altogether) and maintain permanent housing.

If you want more information or you are a landlord that would like to get involved, please contact the Rapid Rehousing Coordinator at 608-257-1436, option 2.

Accessing Rapid Rehousing

When there is an opening, we bring families into the program by using the community-wide priority list. Families experiencing homelessness may be able to have their name added to the list by calling The Salvation Army at 1 (608) 250-2298. If a family is in a shelter, they should be on the priority list.
