The Transitional Housing Program is designed to help families who have recently faced a crisis that left them homeless. Families Forward helps these families get back on their feet by providing housing, counseling, career coaching, life-skills training, and referral services. The transitional homes are spread throughout neighborhoods to protect families' privacy and preserve their dignity, which is especially important for school-age children. Rent on the homes and length of stay are determined between the client and counselor.
Candidates for the Transitional Housing Program must have minor-aged children. This is an intensive program designed to help willing families achieve and maintain financial self-sufficiency. Families must meet the Federal Government's HUD definition of homeless and must have basic English language skills.
How to Apply
There is a high demand for entry into the Transitional Housing Program and of course we cannot guarantee placement. Families Forward does not have an emergency shelter, but if you are in need call us and we will be pleased to refer you to an appropriate shelter. If you are interested in joining the Transitional Housing Program, please call our office at (949) 552-2727.
What Happens Next
We are here to help. Because we cannot guarantee a placement in a home at any particular time as the amount of time a family spends in transitional homes varies, we are not able to keep a waiting list for homes. Whenever there is an opening in the program, our counselors review the family information forms that have been submitted. So it is very important that our contact information on each prospective family is current. If you are in an emergency situation or other crisis, call us and we will do our best to assist you in locating other options.
