Transitional Housing Program

Transitional Housing ProgramHope Center clients who have dealt with the issues that have kept them homeless may take advantage of the Transitional Housing Program. The program provides semi-private rooms that are used by clients who are participating in the Employment Program. Many of them are clients who have completed the Recovery Program.

These clients — who by now have found employment — pay rent and are held accountable for their conduct in weekly community meetings. Everyone does daily chores to help keep the transitional housing area clean and neat. The area also provides a common living space with cooking facilities and an eating area for the clients to use and socialize in. Private showers and toilet facilities are provided, and there is a separate laundry area.

All the while, these clients prepare themselves for life outside the shelter. They save money for deposits, work on life skills and begin the process of finding a suitable place to live.
