HRDC's Newest Homeless Program for Youth
The Youth Homeless Demonstration Project is a Flexible Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) program providing low barrier flexible housing with rental assistance, intensive case management, and bundled support services for homeless youth and young adults ages 18-24. YHDP works with Continuum of Care and Community providers to offer multiple services to project participants starting with housing first. The project pays all rental application fees, deposits, and rental payments for 6 months as the client works to continue their education, establish a job track, and address individual issues that caused homelessness. The ultimate outcome of this project is to provide youth with permanent housing as they work toward economic independence. YHDP focuses on addressing and overcoming obstacles such as chronic disabilities, chronic physical health, mental health conditions, substance abuse, histories of domestic violence or childhood abuse, and multiple barriers to employment. Homeless youth are accepted into this program regardless of issues.
