Hoang was situationally homeless after an extended hospitalization. Eventually, he was evicted from his apartment. While he had never been homeless before, he turned to the Rescue Mission’s Transitions Program where he was able to get meals, shelter, hygiene, clothing, counseling, job placement services, as well as housing referrals. Hoang got back on his feet and into housing. About 25 percent of the men and women who stay with us are employed and striving to work their way out of homelessness. Transitions is the perfect program for people in this situation.
The Transitions Program is designed for those who are experiencing homelessness who are not in need of the New Life Recovery Program. Transitions helps our friends obtain stability in their lives, return to work, and leave the streets. During this program, they will be a guest of the Rescue Mission for three to four months as we work with them to secure employment, housing, and a positive support system.
