Rapid Rehousing: Craig’s Story


The road to permanent housing is as unique as the people we work with.


Our team works to find the most appropriate permanent housing solution based on each person’s unique set of needs. Rapid Rehousing is just one housing solution that works for some of the people that walk through our doors. Qualified applicants complete the necessary documentation and work with our staff to find the right housing for them. Funding allows us to pay tenants’ rent for up to a year and as with Craig’s story, demonstrates the incredible power of housing.


“I’m just excited for his future,” Friendship Shelter staff member Viridiana says of Craig. “Let’s see where he lands.”

As of September 2021, we helped 19 people move out of homelessness and into housing through our Rapid Rehousing program! Craig’s story is just the start.


We are so grateful to each and every one of you who has supported The Next 100 so far. We’re making incredible progress and couldn’t do this work without you! And, there’s still time to make a year-end gift to help the next 100 people move out of homelessness and into permanent housing.


If you haven’t yet, we hope you’ll consider a year-end investment in our mission to house The Next 100 today.
