Transitional Housing fills the gap between emergency housing and being self sufficient. Families with children do not become homeless overnight. They will not overcome the factors that lead to being homeless overnight. Community of Hopes provides transitional housing units which support housing a family for up to two years. The family, when they enter the program, looks at what lead to homelessness and develop a plan to overcome this. This may take the form of counseling, getting a GED or going to a community college. Community of Hope provides opportunities to attend financial training, parenting, and other support services. Through partnerships in the local community, Community of Hope endeavors to move the family into independent living.
