Our programs provide the foundation clients need to lead healthy, independent lives
Family Transitional Housing
Our transitional housing program for families provides critical housing support to 63-70 men, women and children. Each family has its own room(s), allowing for privacy and dignity. Families share bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms and community areas.
Participants can stay for up to 24 months, although our average length of stay is much less: 4-5 months.
Our approach to addressing the growing housing needs of homeless families is not just to provide housing, but also to provide families with all of the tools they need to break the cycle of homelessness.
We serve our parents through myriad services such as vocational training, workforce education, employment, housing placement and much more.
We also do something unusual. We focus intensely on their children. Our Early Childhood & Parenting Program and Children's Services Program provide the foundational, educational and developmental support they need to ensure they don't grow up to be homeless adults. It's an innovative two-generational approach to breaking the cycle of homelessness.
Gilead House provides transitional housing to 16 single adults living with chronic mental illness. Each participant has/her own private bedroom. Clients share kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms and other common areas.
Each participant is assigned a case manager who works alongside him/her to develop an individual service plan. The program is goal-oriented and provides the structure and support necessary to achieve permanent housing and stability.
