Transitional Housing

transitiona-buildingThe Transitional Living Program at My Sisters’ Place provides 18 furnished apartments and is focused on providing women who have experienced chronic homelessness with the skills they need to stop the behaviors, which have contributed to their continuing housing instability. Residents can remain in the program for up to two years.

In addition to providing educational and employment support, My Sisters’ Place also helps residents master soft skills such as developing a strong work ethic, life skills, working with others, and successfully managing personal challenges.

The goals and objectives of the program are:
  • Residential stability
  • Greater self-determination
  • Remaining in permanent housing
  • Participating in citizenship activities
  • Increased skill or income
  • Paying housing expenses
  • Completing a GED or job training program for a minimum of 12 months and becoming employed

Orientation for interested women and/or advocates is held every Tuesday at 10:00 am.
