General Information:
Higher Goals, Inc. was incorporated in 1992 to bring hope and help to those suffering and homeless in Los Angeles neighborhoods. Originally a service arm of the Prayer Time Mission founded in 1971 by Dorothy and John Thompson, the ministry was a response to a growing community need for assistance with housing. As the Thompsons and their friends reached out to the homeless, it soon became apparent that more services were needed than could be financed by church members alone. An expanding financial base allowed Higher Goals, Inc. to add more resources including an emergency shelter with 20 beds and supportive services. 90-Day residency and transitional housing with stays of up to 6 months at multiple sites, job training and employment services are now available.      As outreach has stepped up, referrals have increased from info line and other resources throughout Los Angeles county. Today Higher Goals, Inc. works in tandem with many agencies in order to maximize the services we provide to an ever - increasing constituency.

Helpful Definitions For Higher Goals Inc.:

Transitional housing is affordable supportive housing designed to provide housing and appropriate support services to persons who are homeless or who are close to homelessness. The transition is to help them be more self sufficient to move towards independent living on their own. Transitional housing locations are oftentimes called Halfway Houses. The naming of the two (Halfway House OR Transitional House) is oftentimes interchangeable.

Many Transitional Housing programs are subsidized and are income based. Income based transitional housing generally charges 30% of your income for rent when you do have income. Contact the transitional housing facility to see if this applies.

Services provided at transitional housing facilities varies from substance abuse treatment, to psychological assistance, job training, domestic violence assistance, etc. The assistance provided varies, but it is generally affordable and low cost housing. Read the descriptions of each of the transitional living locations for more detailed information. Transitional housing facilities also may or may not assist with alcohol and/or drug substance abuse treatment.
