The Transitional Housing Initiative is focused on promoting community safety by providing stable housing for clients in need. The program serves probationers in need of a supportive environment which will enable them to stabilize in the community, obtain employment, and ultimately become self-sufficient.
Goodwill staff assist each client in identifying appropriate, affordable housing, and advocate for the client throughout the application process with potential landlords. Once housing has been secured, staff can help client with the move-in process, along with helping to secure needed household items. Staff provide on-going support through face-to-face meetings throughout the twelve week program, focusing on budgeting and other goals as identified by the client.
Our Transitional Living program is designed to serve clients currently on Probation or involved with Re-Entry Court who are referred for services by their supervising officer. We also work with clients referred through various problem-solving courts in the area.
