The Transitional Housing program is designed to help women and their children bridge the gap between their time at the Safe House and living independently. We currently have one transitional housing location in Somerset County that can accommodate four families.
During residency (Maximum time 18 months) women and their children receive in-home case management and counseling services on a bi-weekly basis. The Transitional Housing Program is designed for women who have established a relative sense of independence through employment and/or enrollment in educational classes.
Clients who are currently shelter residents are eligible to apply for the Transitional Housing Program. Clients must be referred by their counselor or case manager to apply for the program. Once the application is completed, the client must also complete an interview.
The Case Managers and Counselors assist residents in staying on task with identified goals that increase their independence and self sufficiency.
A monetary donation is expected for the Transitional Program. The monetary donation is adjusted or waived depending on the resident’s month to month circumstances. These decisions are made in collaboration with the resident. Residents are also responsible for their own utility bills.
