The transitional living program is one option for
clients after they have completed their shelter stay.
Due to the lack of affordable housing, once women have resided
in a shelter they have limited housing options as a next step..
This can result in them being forced to stay with a friend,
going to a homeless shelter or returning to the
abuser. Having a TLP will help to insure that women and their
children have access to safe housing after they leave an emergency
The transitional living program is made up of individual apartments. Women are required to have some type of income and are required to pay rent based on their income level. Each adult has an action plan and works with staff to accomplish their goals. Clients can reside in the TLP for up to two years, during which time they may pursue an education or steady employment. In the TLP women and their children have access to ongoing supportive services that are critical when building a new life.

Permanent Supportive Housing
The permanent supportive housing component of the program is structured much like the transitional living component, but with no time limit. This housing is open to women and children who have a history of domestic violence as well as some type of disability. Residents hold leases for their units and have access to ongoing supportive services.
