Rapid Re-Housing

Bridges to Independence provides rapid re-housing to individuals and families in Arlington County and the City of Alexandria. The goal is to move individuals and families into safe, affordable, and permanent housing as quickly as possible. Our services include housing identification, connection to mainstream resources, financial assistance, and community-based case management. Through partnerships with landlords in the community, families are able to secure and maintain a lease in their own names, which assists them in establishing a foundation for good credit.

Last year, our Rapid Re-Housing program served 72 families, totaling 234 individuals:

  • 88% of the families served remained in permanent housing with a lease in their own name.
  • 76% of the adults served left the program employed.
