Transitional Housing is a residential program intended for families who need a safe haven from which to access our other services. Families in our residential program stay for an average of eighteen months while they work to heal and rebuild their lives.

Financial independence, while not our only goal for our residents, is an essential piece of a self sufficient family. Therefore each of our families is working and saving, or training for future position that will allow them to earn a living wage.

We accept applications from mothers with custody of their minor children who are homeless, or on the verge of becomming homeless and have a history of abuse.

Individuals who are interested in knowing more about our transitional program can request more information here.
