Experiencing Homelessness: How Rapid Rehousing Transforms the Lives of Those in Need

Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas’ Rapid Rehousing program has had a profound impact on the lives of unhoused individuals and families. The program has provided a lifeline, helping them regain stability and rebuild their lives.

Our approach aims to provide short-term rental assistance and long-term case management to move those who are experiencing homelessness to permanent housing quickly. We also work closely with local agency partners–and landlords–to ensure that our clients have access to safe, affordable housing options.

“Because of this program, my life has completely changed. I remember when I first got the keys to my new apartment, feeling immense awe for simply having a roof over my head. I have such gratitude now for this whole program that I can’t even put into words,” noted a client.

The program’s comprehensive support services are instrumental in helping our clients overcome the barriers that led to their homelessness in the first place, breaking the cycle of poverty and promoting economic self-sufficiency.

“The program not only provided me with stable housing, it also helped me gain employment, readily access food and experience human connection with my case manager whom I spoke with weekly,” the client added.

Catholic Charities is committed to creating a solid support system for those in need! Watch this video to hear more client testimonials and learn about this life-changing program.
