Transitional Housing, Independent Living
How do you stabilize someone who no longer knows the meaning of the word “stable”? You start by putting a roof over their head.
Of course, it's not just a roof. It's a kitchen, where we’ll show someone how to make a pot of spaghetti, because no one ever took the time to do that before. It’s a dining room, where we celebrate birthdays with children who've never had a birthday party in their lives.
On the streets, they learned to trust no one – here, they learn how to build relationships. On the streets, they focused on day-to-day survival – here, they focus on the future. On the streets, they slept wherever they could – here, they have a space to call their own.
