General Information:
At Tabor and TLC our philosophy has always been to give people the tools and inspiration to meet their housing and financial challenges – and they make it happen. TLC is a positive place of hope and caring that provides those in need with an opportunity to transform their lives and their situations. The process of moving from homelessness to housing…is itself a transformative experience...we call it the Bridges to Housing Program. Many of Tabor's programs are focused on moving clients into or maintain permanent housing. After clients find permanent housing, other services at Tabor can help ensure that they keep their housing and become financially stable. Read about the Housing first focus of each of these programs & services below.     From Homelessness to Permanant Housing:     Shelter to Independent Living Program (STIL) carries out the "Housing First" philosophy by assisting families experiencing homelessness to find permanent housing within 3 months of being referred to the program.

These goals help ensure that clients keep their homes.     Short-Term Transitional Housing:     Beth Shalom "House of Peace" Program provides short term transitional housing and supportive services for women leaving prison and allows them to reunite with their children and develop an understanding of living life according to biblical standards.
