Rapid Re-Housing program at Metropolitan Calumet coordinates subsidized housing and wrap-around support to survivors of domestic violence

“It starts with us working as a team and moving together; we have such a great foundation in-house. We build [survivors] up and help them succeed in the next phase of their new lives.”

What happens once a survivor of domestic violence leaves a shelter?

The ultimate goal is independence, self-sufficiency; the first step is a new place to live.

Our Rapid Re-Housing program opens a new door to financial stability for survivors by finding them a home, subsidizing the rent and providing holistic support, as they contribute more and more in rent until they sustain it on their own.

Based at our Calumet Center but serving survivors city-wide, the program opens a door, then offers a safety net and an accountability partner until they walk through it themselves.
