Rapid Re-Housing, Transitional & Permanent Housing

Our Rapid Re-Housing, Transitional and permanent housing provide affordable housing opportunities young adults. While accessing housing through Northwest Youth Services, all young people are supported by a case manager, who assist youth in setting and achieving their individualized life goals. 

Rapid Re-Housing Program
The Rapid Re-Housing Program is dedicated to youth who are moving out of unstable situations that resulted in them being temporarily homeless. This program offers lease support, housing financial assistance, deposit, and ongoing skill building in collaboration with Housing Case Managers. 

Rapid Re-Housing is a quick path to independence for individuals facing housing instability in our community. 

If you are a landlord or property manager in the community, you have the opportunity to participate in this program, ending experiences of homelessness for young people before they begin. Learn more today

Transitional Housing Program

Available to youth ages 18-21, our transitional housing program provides housing for up to 18 months. During this time, youth work with an appointed case manager to identify and achieve a more permanent housing option. Youth pay into a housing savings account monthly as a way to save up toward their next housing option and are typically focusing on learning tenancy and roommate skills. 

Permanent Housing Program

The Permanent Housing Program is for single or parenting individuals or couples ages 18-24.


Northwest Youth Services staff assist youth in finding an affordable place to live while providing case management and  other supportive services.

  • Staff assist youth in finding a house or apartment to live by themselves or with a roommate.

  • Youth are the leaseholders.

  • Youth can remain in the unit for the life of the lease.

  • Youth are offered temporary financial support if needed, while working with Northwest Youth Services staff toward paying for housing independently.
