Supportive and Transitional Housing
In our Faith House and Hope House programs, vulnerable young families receive resources and support to help them make a successful transition to financial independence and self-sufficiency within two years.
Our residents have access to a comprehensive continuum of care that not only addresses their immediate housing and living needs, but also prepares them for a successful career, stable family life, and confident future.
Our Faith House program is housed in a separate building on St. Ann’s campus. Each Faith House family lives in their own private apartment unit with shared kitchen and community living areas.
Faith House participants receive access to all of our supportive services, in a more independent setting.
Our Hope House residents live in single-room units on the first floor of St. Ann’s main building. Each of our large, comfortable rooms is fully-furnished for a single mother with children.
In Hope House, residents have access to our supportive services, in addition to 24-hour supervision and care.
