Services: Housing and supportive services for homeless families with minor children.
Provides transitional housing and supportive services, clothing, household items, information and referral to homeless and persons at risk of homelessness.
ESHC is not a handout. It’s a hand up. We help homeless families who want to help themselves.
The ESHC housing campus has 18 single family homes available for homeless families with minor children living in the household. The 5 acre campus located in West Augustine includes a children learning center, computer room, laundry facility, food pantry, playground, and storage facilities for donated items. ESHC relies on the goodwill of volunteers from local organizations and the faith-based community to help with landscaping, home cleaning and maintenance. All the furniture, household items, toys in our homes are donated from the community. This generosity is essential to our program since most of our homeless families come to ESHC with just the clothes they’re wearing. Many times, organizations will adopt a house as their own, providing the materials and resources to create a warm, safe and secure environment for our homeless families.
Helpful Definitions For Emergency Services and Homeless Coalition of St. Johns County, 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.
