Since 2009, Moore Affordable Housing’s Transitional Housing program has been helping homeless single mothers with children escape homelessness and become self sufficient. The purpose of the Transitional Housing program is to empower homeless single mothers and their children to become self-sufficient through the provision of housing, case management, and wrap-around supportive services.
Currently Our Transitional Housing program is looking to provide housing for several households throughout Los Angeles County. Transitional Housing provides families with the appropriate time and sense of security that will enable them to set their own goals as they move toward self-sufficiency. Because each family enters our program with their own unique challenges, our caring and qualified staff meets each family where they are and will help them to become independent. Supportive services may include job skills training, counseling, access to childcare and healthcare, and other necessary services.
Moore Affordable Housing Inc. understands that often simply providing a roof over our families' heads isn’t the solution. The Transitional Housing program strives to address all of the challenges that confront each family. If domestic violence is an issue, we will work with the family in light of this history. Families can stay in the Transitional Housing program for up to two years. This length of time affords families the opportunity to truly learn the skills they need and the opportunity to save enough money so that they will be successful living independently. Participating families must meet with their case managers weekly, at a minimum. They must enroll their children in schools, work, contribute to savings accounts, and contribute back into the program.
Each family is seen as a unique unit and is provided services that are customized to their needs. They must continue to meet their goals toward self-sufficiency in order to stay in the program. Our families do not live in a shelter setting. According to the family size, there are either two or three families per household. This helps the families get used to living independently and learning the challenges that come with independent living. In addition, this arrangement allows each family to focus on its own goals, and at the same time learn a since of comradery and gain a since of caring and sharing.
In addition, each family contributes a percentage of their annual income to the program. A percentage is held in a savings account for the families which is returned to them when they graduate the program. The remaining percentage is used to defer the costs associated with operating the programWe are currently creating content for this section. In order to be able to keep up with our high standards of service, we need a little more time. Please stop by again. Thank you for your interest!
