Programs and Supportive Services
Transitional Housing provides clients with a more comfortable living environment. Clients must either be working or enrolled in a training or educational program to enter this component. The program’s focus concentrates on financial management and the search for permanent housing. This program rewards clients for the work they have done and prepares them for the transition to self-sufficiency.
Single Room Occupancy Units – There are 59 project-based single room occupancy (SRO) permanent units housed within the John Joseph Moakley Veterans Quarters located at the shelter.
