CENTER FOR TRANSFORMING LIVES’ HOUSING SERVICES supports WOMEN AND THEIR CHILDREN who are EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS WITH ACCESS to PERMANENT HOUSING THROUGH EMERGENCY SHELTER, TRANSITIONAL HOUSING, AND FAMILY HOUSING PROGRAMS

Our Sustainable Housing Approach

Through the housing program, families are connected to services including early childhood education, economic mobility services, clinical counseling, and health and well-being services, as well as access to benefits such as SNAP or health insurance.

CLINICAL COUNSELING

Housing residents who have experienced past trauma or who indicate abuse of substances are referred for clinical treatment within CTL. These licensed mental health professionals also facilitate psychoeducational and support groups that use a person-centered approach to help participants heal and develop coping skills. 

OUR CASE MANAGERS

Case Managers provide strength-based, client-driven case management through a trauma-informed lens, enhancing the client’s ability to increase income and create housing stability. Case Managers support families on their way to permanent housing that supports self-sufficiency through:

  • Intensive case management
  • Service planning and monitoring
  • Rental assistance
  • Career Coaching
  • School enrollment and attendance
  • Parent/child counseling services
  • Financial services
  • Discharge/aftercare planning

Our community saved by
our families moving from homelessness to long-term housing

90% of homeless women experience violence
as a child and an adult  

Our Emergency Shelter is often the first line of defense for homeless women experiencing violence. Statistics show that women in poverty are much more likely to stay with their abusers longer and return to them sooner because of financial barriers. CTL’s Housing Services are intentionally paired with Economic Mobility support and trauma-informed counseling that works to end cycles of poverty, trauma, and abuse.

We are unwavering in our work to provide safe environments and act as a partner in
healing for women and children who are victims of violence.
