Our transitional housing program provides families with the opportunity to make a gradual transition back into the community. Those participating in this program have demonstrated the ability to make positive changes in their lives while engaged in shelter services, but are unable to maintain these changes once re-entering the community. On average, nine families comprised of 11 adults and 21 children participate in this program each month. The length of their stay ranges from 3 to 24 months depending on their needs. Once this program is successfully completed, families will either transition into our permanent housing program or move back into the community to live independently. Our permanent housing program provides safe and affordable housing to formerly homeless individuals and families, including those with physical and/or mental disabilities. This program is comprised of a variety of apartments and townhouses located in close proximity to Opportunity House. On average, 38 adults and 23 children reside in our permanent housing program. In order to qualify for the supportive housing programs, individuals and families must have successfully completed the shelter program at Opportunity House. Those implementing these services must put 30% of their monthly income towards rent. Utilities such as gas, electric and water are included in this fee.  Our supportive housing programs include:     Case management services to assist with daily living activities     Counseling to help clients set manageable goals     Assistance with resume writing and job interviewing skills     Mental health and drug and alcohol treatment services     Transportation to and from medical appointments when needed (Limited assistance provided with job search)     Money management to help clients clear old debt, learn budgeting skills and prepare for independent living by saving a portion of their income     Around the clock childcare through the Second Street Learning Center to ensure that clients are able to work any shift     Aftercare is available for those who move back into the community and wish to receive continued assistance from their case manager

Apartment Checklist

Check For Waiting Lists

Most apartments have waiting lists. Search early and do not just settle on one apartment choice.

Contact Your Local Housing Authority

Housing authorities have many opportunities. Many do have closed waiting lists, but they may be able to provide other public housing resources.

Check The Federal Poverty Sliding Scale Guidelines

Check to see if you qualify for low cost or free housing by comparing the guidelines to your income records.
