Emergency Shelter

River City CDC provides emergency shelter to individuals and families through partnered motels.

Emergency shelter is not guaranteed, and will be based on participant eligibility, funding, motel room availability, and program enrollment availability.

Priority will be given to the elderly, individuals or families with medical issues, families with young children, and individuals or families experiencing domestics violence.

Rapid Rehousing

The rapid rehousing program provides short-term rental assistance and services.  The goals are to help people obtain housing quickly, increase self- sufficiency, and stay housed.


Resources and services provided are typically tailored to the needs of the person.
