Hours of operation: Monday 1-5 PM, Tuesday-Friday 10 AM-2 PM, one Saturday 11 AM-1 PM. Our Transitional Housing Program offers up to twelve months of housing and case management for homeless families with children. We currently have eight housing units. We offer life skills training, counseling, budgeting, parenting skills training, and other enrichments to each family while they are housed.
