Transitional Housing & Rapid Re-Housing

Arise offers safe and practical housing solutions to individuals and families through transitional housing and rapid re-housing (a.k.a. rental assistance) programs, or a combination of both.

  • Individuals and families can receive Transitional Housing and/or Rapid Re-Housing Assistance anywhere from 12 to 24 months.
