Family Re-Housing Stabilization Program  

The Family Re-Housing Stabilization Program (FRSP), also commonly known as Rapid Re-Housing (RRH), is a time-limited housing and support designed to assist families experiencing homelessness – or at imminent risk of experiencing homelessness – to afford dignified and safe housing in the private market. Rental assistance and support services are provided for 12 to 18 months based on the needs of the household.  FRSP is available only to families who are connected to another DHS program – like a shelter – after they are assessed and determined eligible by VWFRC.    

The purpose of FRSP is to minimize the number of time families spend in shelters and support rapid exit back to stable housing.  Through the program, families receive: 

  • First month’s rent and security deposit;  
  • A basic furniture package and moving assistance; and  
  • Rental assistance and case management during the time they are in the program (generally 12 months). 

If you are a family enrolled in the program, additional information can be found here.

If you are a landlord interested in partnering with the program, additional information can be found at anewleaseonlifedc.com
