One on one support to work toward sustainable income and housing.
We work with existing case management services to meet guests' needs.
During the months in which the transition program is offered, our guests work on step by step goals towards gaining employment, improving overall health, securing permanent housing and starting a financial savings plan. The transition program assists with the overall community goal of decreasing homelessness. We do not require payment and we provide paid staff to oversee the progress of our guests. We also work with existing case management services to meet guests' needs.
