Transitions' operates five separate programs, each serving women and families in different ways.
The Transitional Living Center provides services to women with children in a residential setting. Fifteen 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments are the core of this supportive housing program. Here young families transition from homelessness with the assistance of a family support advocate. Weekly meetings, group activities and a supportive staff all help these women learn how to make it on their own. Families can stay up to two years while learning the skills for independent successful living.
EduCare, located on site of the Transitional Living Center offers low cost therapeutic childcare to the women who make TLC their home. It provides a stable, nurturing environment for the children where they learn to get along with others and express their feelings in an appropriate manner. A well trained staff also helps the mothers with their parenting skills.
Miryam's House is a residential program for women without children. Each woman has a room of her own and the support of a caring staff. Meals are shared. Living here for up to one year allows homeless women to get back on track in a supportive environment.
The Women's Hearth is a warm, welcoming day center in the city core. Here women can seek shelter from the streets, connect with services, take a shower, learn something new, express themselves through the arts or connect via the computer lab. Truly there is something for everyone.
New Leaf Bakery Cafe is a unique job training program that
blends education, hands-on work experience, and supportive services designed to help low-income women gain the self-confidence and professional skills necessary for self-sufficiency.
