TRANSITIONAL HOUSING FOR FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN

Transitional Housing is a program that serves homeless families with children for up to 2 years. It provides a holistic approach to helping a family become self-sufficient. If chosen they move into an apartment or house depending on family size, need, and availability. They pay their own utilities and their rent is based on their income. While in the program they are assigned a case manager that assists them in finding and keeping employment, enrolling in higher education, developing a budget, addressing parenting needs and setting future housing goals. Any family that doesn’t have a GED is required to attend adult basic education classes.  All school-aged children must attend school.  Families are referred to any other community services that they need that we are unable to provide.
