How do you get assistance from the Rapid Re-Housing Collaborative?
Referrals to this project are ONLY made from the Pinellas Homeless Leadership Board (HLB) Housing Prioritization Master List. To get on this list, first, you must be literally homeless (on the street, in an emergency shelter, in a transitional housing program, or just released from jail or hospital and where homeless prior to the jail or hospital visit) and, second, have been screened using the VI-SPDAT which has been entered into the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). Once these steps are complete, then you will appear on the Pinellas Homeless Leadership Board (HLB) Housing Prioritization Master List. Referrals from the Pinellas Homeless Leadership Board (HLB) Housing Prioritization Master List are made based on vulnerability score which means the most vulnerable clients get helped first. Make sure that your contact information (phone and email address) are correct in HMIS and that the HLB staff know where to find you when the referral for services is made.
