Catholic Charities Housing First


Catholic Charities Housing First helps long-term homeless men and women secure housing and connect to supportive services to help them remain housed. The Rapid Re-housing Program helps people experiencing short-term homelessness of less than one year find housing and provides limited follow-up services for six months.

Housing First is a national model that delivers services in a more dignified and compassionate way by providing people who are homeless with the stability of housing and then offering supportive services to address their barriers to stabilization.

Working through strategic partnerships with a consortium of local service providers in Hennepin and Ramsey counties, Catholic Charities provides the initial outreach and the services that follow once people are placed.

Follow-up services include help in securing Social Security or veterans’ benefits, transportation to medical appointments, basic necessities such as food and furniture and referrals to community resources.

Housing First works by referral only. If you need help finding housing, click here.

Services:

  • Scattered-site housing in the Twin Cities for single men and women and families
  • Follow-up support services to help people maintain their housing
  • Tenant/landlord mediation
  • Referrals to community resources

Landlord Partnerships:

The Housing First program is always looking for partnerships with private market landlords in both Ramsey and Hennepin Counties. The Housing First program offers support services to participants in housing to both the participants as well as their landlords. Housing First staff act as the liaison between participants/tenants and their respective landlords. This service offered by Housing First staff to private market landlords in our partnership is not a service that can be bought. Please contact Stacey Ray, Senior Program Manager at Catholic Charities, if you are interested in learning more about this potential business partnership.
