Racine Revitalization, Supportive Housing and House to Home


Racine Revitalization and The Supportive Housing Development

RRP and the Homeless Assistance Leadership Organization (HALO) have partnered to provide supportive transitional housing for people facing homelessness in Racine County. HALO will provide case management for persons living in the partnership units. HALO has operated Transitional Housing, Permanent Supportive Housing, and Rapid Rehousing programs since 2008, which include case management. The House to Home Program is a major focus of RRP and it includes making abandon properties useful again through complete rehab and new construction. All our homes are sold to income qualified buyers who have been provided with the skills needed for successful home ownership. RRP’s Executive Director has over 30 years of experience in the design and construction of residential housing.
