TRANSITIONAL HOUSING PROGRAM
The number one reason domestic violence victims can’t “just leave” is because they are being financially abused. Transition House is a program that offers a
supportive environment where the survivor can return to school or the workforce. Survivors are given the chance to think about their future and what they want it to look like. Once employed, the families are encouraged to start a savings plan. Through case management and counseling the parent and children will develop skills needed to heal and begin rebuilding a healthy family unit.
