The Somerville Homeless Coalition’s innovative prevention and re-housing program, Rapid Response, prevents families and individuals from becoming homeless, or rapidly re-houses them with emergency assistance. Rapid Response offers case management support for those in crisis and provides financial assistance with back rent, start-up costs, and utility payments, all of which could keep families and individuals in their homes and off the streets.
*Most of these funds have restrictions. Please check with a staff member for eligibility.
