Colorado Rapid ReHousing for Re-Entry Program

This program will be a collaboration between the Colorado Division of Housing, Volunteers of America Colorado Branch, the CoC's OneHome Coordianted Entry System, and the Colorado Department of Corrections. Additional information including the presentation, webinar and fact sheets are available below.

HOW DOES COR3 DIFFER FROM OTHER RAPID REHOUSING PROGRAMS?

COR3 applies the Rapid Rehousing + Care model to effectively serve individuals with prior or current justice involvement presenting with identified behavioral health issues.  Rapid Rehousing + Care effectively serves individuals with multiple, co-occurring and significant barriers to housing.  Principles of the Rapid Rehousing + Care Model include:

  • Adherence to baseline nationally recognized Rapid Rehousing standards
  • Additional financial assistance dollars per household
  • Slightly extended lengths of stay (9- to 18-month average) in the program to promote housing retention
  • Prioritization of connection to employment and mainstream public benefits in support of housing objectives
  • Integration of/direct connection to behavioral healthcare into rapid rehousing service teams for gap service provision

WHAT IS THE SERVICE AREA?

COR3 will serve individuals currently residing in, or exiting correctional institutions into, the following counties:

  • Northern Colorado (Larimer, Weld, Morgan, Logan, Phillips, Jackson, and Sedgwick Counties)
  • Southern Colorado (Pueblo, Custer, Huerfano, Alamosa, Costilla, Las Animas, Crowley, Kiowa, Prowers, El Paso, Fremont, Saguache, Rio Grande, Conejos, Baca, and Otero Counties:
  • Denver/Metro (Denver, Jefferson, Broomfield, Boulder, Arapahoe, Douglas, and Adams Counties)

WHO ARE THE REFERRAL SOURCES?

COR3 will accept referrals from HUD Continuum of Care-based Coordinated Entry Systems, and from identified points of contact within the Colorado Department of Corrections (details will be communicated prior to COR3’s October 1 launch date).
