Eligibility

Regularly scheduled Case Management and Health & Education classes are required as well. Upon completion of these immediate requirements, a resident may be recommended for the Transitional Program.

Transitional Program
Transitional House residents may stay in this phase of the program for 2-6 months after the birth of their children. Residents are responsible for a reasonable monthly program fee, a one-time refundable deposit, and most of their food expenses. The shelter provides donated food items as available. Residents prepare their own meals, share housekeeping responsibilities, and continue with ongoing job training/searching or employment and Case Management. A mentor is provided to help clients transition and cope while learning independent living skills. 12-step programs, Co-dependency courses, or perinatal programs assigned on a case-by-case basis. Licensed on-site childcare is available for mothers who work, go to school, or are actively looking for a job.
