 TRANSITION HOUSE FOR WOMEN & CHILDREN
     

     While many families are homeless and domestic violence is endemic in our communities and has become much worse during the recent economic downturn, when many are out of work and feeling desperate.  While there are a number of short-term shelters, there are few opportunities for the longer support that gives women and their families a chance to get on their feet financial and emotionally.

     The Transition House supports sixty (60) women and seventy-seven (77) children in a three-bedroom residential area in the past twelve (12) years.  Most of these women are unemployed, emotional and require a safe living environment with their child or children.  The cost of literally saving a family is approximately $10,000 a month.  

     Safe haven is needed for these homeless and battered families.  The support and healing begins for the women and children when fostered not only by the safe living environment, but also the knowledge that may in the community really care about them.  This demonstrated to them by the support, monetary gifts and meals sent by many people of our community that come to give of their time in helping to maintain the house and yard.  As these families transition from being homeless, battered and down on their luck; at the Transition House they become more educated, independent, develop skills and become women that can achieve more to life for their children.
