Program provides insight into homeless eradication model

ST. LOUIS (AP) – One year after 51 homeless veterans were given free housing for up to a year, the program has offered a glimpse into the challenges and successes of the homeless eradication model called “rapid rehousing.”

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1DJ0r3i ) reports that the program was managed by a local nonprofit but funded with federal housing dollars running through St. Louis’ human services department.

A case manager of the $530,000 program says the biggest challenge was gaining the veterans’ trust.
Fourteen of the participants are living independently in their own apartments, and many of them have jobs.

Twenty-three have transferred to a housing voucher program, while five others have moved out of town. Three qualified for other housing assistance, four died and two others were put in nursing homes.
