What Do We Know?
Transitional living refers to any type of living situation that is transitional. The primary purpose or mission of transitional living environments is temporary. Transitional living facilities often offer low cost housing. Transitional living residents that cater to those recovering from economic hardship often graduate from a shelter to lesser crowded living situation.
Our Transitional Housing Program is a residential assistant’s services, that focuses its efforts on helping the thousands of homeless “unaccompanied youths" and “veterans“, the “65+ Silver Seniors“, and “low-income/domestic violence households" throughout the United States.
How Hope's Response Helps?
What is the scale of youth homelessness?
Approximately 11% of all people experiencing homelessness as individuals on a given night are “unaccompanied”youth. We use the term unaccompanied youth to describe people who are under the age of 25 and are not part of a family with children or accompanied by their parent of guardian during their episode of homelessness.
Our “Unaccompanied" Youth Housing Assistants Project is designed to provide hope to some of America’s less fortunate unaccompanied youths.
This program offer independent living skills development and job training skills (including vocational and computer training with a focus on STEM education training) to unaccompanied youth between the ages of 16 and 22.
Our independent living skills projects activities take place in a variety of community settings; including, worksites, the bank, public transportation, and many other locations.
Hope’s Response Job Training Projects will focus on vocational and computer skills (with a emphasis on STEM education). We believe that a lack of access should not be the reason that our youth fail.
Our Computer Skills Project provide unaccompanied youth, (now students) all the necessary equipment and support needed to assistance them achieve invaluable computer skills needed for the modern workspace.
This is a tiered program and students have the opportunity to advance through as many as four levels of instruction. As they make progress, students fine-tune their work abilities, determine job preferences, and learn to work with growing independence.
The goal of our “Unaccompanied" Youth Housing Assistants Project is to assistant our clients become as independent as possible, including securing competitive integrated employment.
No Veteran Should Be Without a Place to Call Home.
Hope’s Response is committed to ending homelessness among Veterans. Our focus is threefold:
Conducting coordinated outreach to proactively seek out Veterans in need of assistance.
Connecting homeless and at-risk Veterans with housing solutions, health care, community employment services, and other required supports.
Collaborating with federal, state and local agencies; employers; housing providers, faith-based and community nonprofits; and others to expand employment and affordable housing options for Veterans exiting homelessness.
Homeless Providers Grant and Per Diem (GPD) Program
State, local and tribal governments and nonprofits receive capital grants and per diem payments to develop and operate transitional housing—including short-stay bridge housing—and/or service centers for Veterans who are homeless.
Many senior citizens live on fixed incomes…
Unfortunately, programs such as Social Security aren’t always enough to pay for living expenses, including housing.
This forces many older people to seek low-income senior housing to stretch their dollars and make ends meet.
There are numerous options for low-income senior housing, available through the government and through the private market Low-Income Housing Tax Credit properties:
In the LIHTC program, developers and investors get tax credits for buying, rehabbing, or building rental housing intended for lower-income people.
In exchange, all or a portion of the apartments are set aside for low- or fixed-income tenants.
Your eligible income and your rent will be based on the average income for the area where you live.
Many of our LIHTC properties are operated as 55+ or 62+ communities, and/or senior apartments.
These are the types of low-income senior housing you’ll often see on After55.com.
Contact the apartment communities through After55.com to see about availability and your eligibility.
Keep in mind that “low income” does not mean housing is located in a crime-ridden neighborhood.
We encourage housing units or apartment communities are well-designed and managed properly, and are in safe and stable neighborhoods, then you or your loved one will be fine.
Be aware, however, that all of these low-income senior-housing programs might have long waiting lists.
Each low-income housing program has slightly different requirements.
With qualifications for age, income, and more, it can be tricky to navigate the options and figure out which one is best for you.
Our Affordable Housing Assistance Program is for families that are homeless or facing imminent eviction as an immediate transitional housing option and/or emergency shelter.
This program is designed to an assistance our clients navigate through the weeds of all the different programs that help low-income individuals find affordable rental housing.
The goal to our Affordable Housing Assistance Program is to assistant our clients develop more effective independent living skills while will helping them find long term, permanently affordable housing and/or apartments.
