Transitional Housing Overview

Transitional housing is temporary housing that is available for up to two years for those who are homeless. What makes these facilities unique is their focus on long-term, internal change for the residents.

St. Vincent de Paul's Transitional Housing Program provides both housing and supportive services as well. Residents work with a case manager who helps them address issues that contribute to their homelessness. We work with each client so they may build a strong rental history and learn the necessary life skills that will help them move toward self-sufficiency. However, clients must be willing to actively participate in the development of a comprehensive and supportive action plan that will guide them toward this self-sufficiency goal.

Homeless individuals and families come to St. Vincent de Paul with a variety of complex problems and unmet needs. We seek to invest in these people through this program, ensuring that they become capable of providing for their own needs, and the needs of their family. Continual support and staff teamwork are an integral part of this process.

Transitional Housing Eligibility

To be eligible for St. Vincent de Paul's Transitional Housing Program, an individual or family must be homeless, have a verifiable income, be willing to submit to a criminal background check, and demonstrate they are drug-free. They must also show they are motivated to become self-sufficient by participating in all required program components.

Units are subject to availability, with a possible waiting list. Rent is based on income.
