Transitional Housing & Home Ownership

A New Beginning

Stable, drug-free transitional housing provides a supportive and controlled environment for T.R.Y. clients to live together for six to twelve months, recover and build new relationships based on trust, fellowship and love.

T.R.Y. guides these men and women in building their own healthy support network by providing an interim, family-oriented environment and a provision of basic needs, resources or referrals for food, shelter, clothing and health care. Transitional housing includes a 30-day coping period, weekly bible studies and group devotions, community services and housekeeping responsibilities to maintain a model home.

T.R.Y. also prepares families for reconnection even before these men and women reenter the community by providing directed family assistance.
