Residential Program
Our Residential Program includes transitional housing and supportive services for the entire family. Hope House's 32,000 square foot complex includes 50 fully furnished individual apartment units, administrative offices, a multipurpose Family Learning Center, a small health clinic and a 6,000 square foot, state-accredited Child Development Center. Families and single individuals in need of Hope House's comprehensive approach to transitional housing are referred for services through the Transitional Housing Screening Board and the Catholic Charities Housing Resource Center.
After a successful completion of the Residential Program, clients are offered continued supportive services for an additional six months.  We encourage clients to stay focused on the Case Plan and Career Development Plan they established while in the Residential Program, and continue to bring their children to our Child Development Center to preserve their sense of continuity and stabiltiy.  Clients may also be eligible for emergency utility and rental assistance to help them maintain stability in the community.
