We don't want to put anyone in a position to fail, so we have to make sure they are ready to make that move.
The church has been very helpful in bringing in funds that we put toward our transitional housing. They've recently been really stepping up their involvement.
Our transitional program is different from others because we work very hard to keep families together. A lot of programs just accept women and their children.
We also help families open savings accounts and manage their money. Our case managers help them find child-care opportunities, take care of their medical needs and address domestic-violence concerns. It is a support system to help people stabilize themselves.
