Class of Housing/Services: Short-Term Transitional Shelter for women.
Serving homeless women and their children, the HOS Short-Term Transitional Shelter provides secure living conditions in a dorm style environment and wraparound services that are designed to meet clients "where they are" to help them move toward a new beginning and a self-sufficient lifestyle. These services may include case management, linkages to community resources, assistance with career planning, mental health services, and more. An expansion added space that now provides nine dorm rooms with access to two communal kitchens, shared bathrooms, a child's play area and laundry facilities. There are four two-bedroom individual living units to accommodate mothers with adolescent-age boys or with special needs. Currently, the shelter can serve 45-51 individuals per night. After an average stay of 4.5 months, approximately 85 percent of clients exit services into permanent housing.
