The transitional housing program is funded by a federal grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Transitional housing allows our residential guests to stay for up to 2 years in housing as they make strides to improve their circumstances and viability for interdependent, responsible living within our community.
Our residents are given a room in which to live along with shared, private showers. The rooms were remodeled with an emphasis on decor more consistent with a home than an intuitional setting. Services are provided on site and off site through partnering organizations.
