Rapid Rehousing

Upward Bound House’s Rapid Rehousing program works to help the growing population of families in South Los Angeles who are experiencing homelessness.

Using the Housing First model, we move families into permanent affordable housing as quickly as possible, assist with move-in costs such as security and utility deposits and short-medium term declining rental subsidies, and provide intensive social services while families are in their own homes. These supportive services are designed to enhance each family’s stability and equip them with the skills and resources they need to sustain and thrive in housing and avoid future homelessness.

Once a family is housed, Upward Bound House works with over 20 community-based organizations to provide additional supportive services to increase their income, help them escape poverty, and improve the health, education and development of their young children.
