Housing Overview

Everyone needs a place to call home.

We believe housing is an essential need that must be met to successfully prevent and break the cycle of homelessness. Without support, finding a safe and secure place to call home can be overwhelming and extremely challenging for families and individuals experiencing homelessness and those in lower-income brackets.

Housing First Approach

Housing First is an approach focused on prioritizing housing in the delivery of homelessness support. Putting permanent housing first in the development of programs and services for families and individuals creates a platform for them to achieve an improved overall quality of life. Finding employment, addressing health and wellness issues, and recovering from the traumatic impacts of homelessness are made possible with a stable home.

Housing Options

Families in Transition provides housing options to meet people at every stage of their journey, whether they need affordable housing options, integrated supportive services, or other support through specialty housing or community options.

Permanent Affordable Housing

People who fall within established income requirements can secure permanent affordable housing at one of the Families in Transition properties. Residents benefit from living in their own unit. For many families and individuals, this is the stepping stone they need in their journey to prevent and break the cycle of homelessness.

Permanent Supportive Housing

Similar to permanent affordable housing, residents of permanent supportive housing at Families in Transition live in their own apartment unit. They receive the additional benefit of an assigned and dedicated case manager who works with them to set and achieve personal goals and break down barriers to exiting homelessness and maintaining stability.
