The agency offers programs, resources and tools to individuals through access to social services including case workers, healthcare, mentorship and housing.
Helping people transition from homelessness to housing
A just community in which everyone has access to a safe, affordable home
We seek to: welcome all, as they are; balance patience and persistence; improve continually; collaborate willingly; act transparently; adapt creatively and problem-solve; and work relentlessly to counter inequities.
Our Core Beliefs
We believe that: housing is a human right; everyone should have access to shelter, food, and safety; people are experts in their own lives and best able to determine their needs; homelessness and the systems driving homelessness create deep personal and collective trauma; and to end homelessness, the community will need to address its drivers, including economic inequality, institutional racism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of discrimination.
Since 1969, Transition Projects has been a place where people with nowhere to go can find support. With five decades of experience providing shelter, housing and supportive services for very low-income people, we are recognized across the region for our work with veterans, women, people with disabilities, and other highly vulnerable groups. In 2018 alone, more than 1,100 formerly homeless people found safe, affordable housing in the four-county area with our agency’s support. We’ve come a long way in 50 years!
