General Information:
Provides emergency shelter, and longer term transitional housing for homeless children and adults. Programs include: Housing First Program Housing First is for people who are employed and can afford monthly rent payments but lack funds for move-in costs (first month's rent, security deposit) and short-term rent subsidies as needed. They receive those funds from Shelter Network and also receive case management services where they live. Bridges Program The Bridges program helps working families who have an adult family member in school or in a job training program by providing them with temporary rent subsidies while in school or training or paying off debt. Motel Voucher Program The Motel Voucher program is an emergency program for families and individuals on the waiting list to enter Shelter Network's shelter-based programs. Outreach Programs Shelter Network has two Outreach programs. The first is Healthcare for Homeless which links unsheltered homeless individuals throughout the county with existing healthcare services to homeless individuals. The second is Shelter Network's Homeless Outreach Team which collaborates with other agencies to identify and house the most difficult to serve, or chronically homeless individuals, and those with significant behavioral health challenges.


Helpful Definitions For Shelter Network Burlingame:
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.
