The Transitional Housing Program allows homeless families to enjoy clean, stable housing for up to two years while they work toward independence. Housed clients participate in intensive case management, educational, career, and financial goals during their stay. All activities are aimed at self-determination and eventual self-sufficiency. TH case managers use a number of measures to track progress towards financial, educational and behavior modification goals. Case management appointments are scheduled on a weekly basis and case managers assist with day-to-day functioning. Families live in 1 or 2-bedroom efficiency apartments that are completely furnished with donated furniture and housewares. The homes are made ready for move-in by GRACE volunteers.
Families receive vouchers for provisions at the GRACE Food Pantry, Clothing Room and/or the GRACE resale store GRACEful Buys. Medical needs are cared for at the GRACE Community Clinic and additional needs such as transportation costs, tuition aid and school supplies, daycare and other expenses are funded through GRACE Client Services program or through referrals/collaborations with other service agencies or churches.
