General Information:
This is a Non Profit Organization that provides Transitional Housing. Review the details below: Sylvia's Haven was founded in 1987 and has currently expanded to 50 townhouses on an old army base in Massachusetts. By using old Staff-Sergeant houses, we are able to set many families up into their own apartment. We currently have 34 apartments operational, and the remaining 16 are under renovation. We are trying to help our women learn to be self-reliant, self-sufficient, and independent. Many come from abusive situations. Our only requirements are that the women are homeless, and that if they have a drug or alcohol history, that they have been clean for one year. Fees may apply for this Transitional Housing resource. Contact Sylvia's Haven with the contact information we provided to get full details. Oftentimes you can apply for sliding scale fee payment or other options if you are low income. You will need to speak with them to see if you qualify.
