  • As the resources from the stimulus-funded Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) diminish, communities are faced with finding new ways to keep their HPRP-funded programs running. Here is how Housing for New Hope, in Durham/Chapel Hill, NC, strategies are preserving and maintaining rapid re-housing and prevention programs continued federal support.
  • Shifting community model to re-housing: had permanent supportive; but had been reliant solely on site-based transitional housing prior to HPRP; new model to utilize transitional structures for single/families with higher level barriers. Local Evidence of Success: Local evidence of the success of this program model can be seen through the work of Durham’s Re-Housing Team, which has effectively implemented a rapid re-housing program. The re-housing work has been funded through the Homeless Prevention Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) with funding provided through President Obama’s Stimulus Program and managed locally by Housing for New Hope (HNH). HNH received funds from both the City and State HPRP funds. From January 2010 through December, 2011 the three-person Re-Housing Team of Housing for New Hope has assisted 143 households transition from homelessness to their own homes. Those receiving assistance included 60 individuals and 83 family households, including 187 children for a total of 348 people.  
  • Transitions to Permanence (TOP) Collaborative Decided to focus on families with a goal of serving 40 families per year (2011 Point in Time count was 44 families down from 51 in 2010, a 14% reduction due to HPRP primarily. Thought the focus could move us toward ending child and family homelessness in Durham. 4 Emergency and Transitional Providers partnered with Housing for New Hope along 12 other service providers including employment, mental and primary health, social services, to develop plan. Average length of support will be for 6 months, could go as long a year for some families.  Sought funding in 2011 round of CoC funding under the Transition in Place model. Have a newly formed governing and scoring committee, very confusing process, another project recommended for top spot, but we did get to present at public forum and people were beginning to understandAwarded $100,000 grant from foundation that loved our collaborationHave strong interest from another foundation who heard about the first and considering.An international corporation has invited to apply for a grant; they loved collaboration, plus proven track model, plus possible leverage of their money for public money, plus advocacy workAre slated for assistance from reallocated HPRP funds on both state and local level, and for possible funding via supplemental ESG the same.Strength of public/private partnership on this project-one leveraging the other

  • Durham Congregations, Associations, and Neighborhoods (CAN) is Durham CAN (Congregations, Associations and Neighborhoods) is a multi-racial, multi-faith, strictly non-partisan, countywide citizens’ organization. CAN is affiliated with the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the oldest and largest national, congregation-based, community organizing network in the United States.  CAN leaders translate deeply felt concerns into real innovative solutions that benefit the whole community, such as lead abatement in homes with children under six, a living wage for City and County employees, a rental inspection program, and now a re-housing program and jobs employment program. Candidates committed to fund or find funding to assist at least 40 families a year at total budget of $400,000 move from shelter and homelessness into their own housing in a program based on the HPRP success model. Now meeting the elected officials, including the Mayor who made the pledge.
