Our Programs

Transitional Housing Program

Our Transitional Housing Program is up to twenty-four months in duration. We offer each resident the opportunity to address issues such as addiction, sexual, physical and emotional abuse, lack of education and poor health care, while teaching her the life skills needed for independent living. We believe in working with the individual as a whole and addressing all needs necessary to maintain sobriety and to stay on track mentally.

Permanent Supportive Housing Program

A permanent and safe home is critical to the physical and mental well-being of a person dealing with a substance abuse problem and a mental illness. Recognizing housing as a fundamental right and key component of living with dignity, Homeless to a Home works to provide women with a safe, permanent home to help them become functional members of society. Homeless to a Home with Children allows women to bring their children with them as they work toward restoring their life.

Transitional Housing Program

Overview

We specialize in treating the entire individual.  Each client receives treatment based on their individualized treatment plan.  A great number of our clients have had prior treatment for their addiction but that treatment did not include the extensive supportive services provided by us to prevent relapse and chronic homelessness. We offer a “one-stop” treatment facility which gives clients all the tools necessary to go from being homeless and addicted to being sober and living independently. We provide the supportive services consistent with being held accountable for your actions and changing behavior to produce better results in the future. Those changed behaviors result in being employed, being housed and off the street and Life-Long sobriety to stop the patterns of bad behavior that are associated with addiction.

Phased Approach to Treatment

The House of T.I.M.E. Transitional Housing Program consists of Four phases and an Alumni Program.  We credit much of our success to our phased approach to treatment.

Permanent Supportive Housing

Overview

The Homeless to a Home program provides Permanent Supportive Housing for dually diagnosed (mental illness and substance abuse disability) homeless women at risk of experiencing multiple barriers in maintaining sobriety, employment and housing stability. The client has no time limit on stay and has access to a flexible array of comprehensive services, including medical, mental health, substance abuse management and recovery, vocational and employment training, money management, case management, life skills, transportation and household establishment. The main goals are remaining permanently housed, maintaining sobriety, and working with the client’s disability to achieve the fullest quality of life possible.  The House of T.I.M.E. was founded on the philosophy that one must “earn” what they receive. In continuing our philosophy, this program incorporated many guidelines that are “up and above” any of our funding requirements. All our clients are expected to “help themselves” as much their disabilities will allow. Most of the clients are working, but if they are unable to secure or maintain employment, they are required to volunteer in some capacity. A client sitting at home being idle is not an option for continued stay in this program.   Clients live independently in apartments within the community. The client's Individualized Treatment and Permanent Housing Plan is developed during client intake and services needed by the client is accessed and secured within the first 30 days and in most cases within the first five days. Community networking and knowledge sharing is vital to the success of the client and is achieved by consistent effort of the residential manager and case manager of record. Client's progress is discussed weekly in a treatment team environment that includes dedicated staff members, Medical Director and a Licensed Counselor. This program is designed to help one of the most disadvantaged populations; women with substance abuse issues, a mental illness and homelessness. This population and sub-populations are very difficult to serve, but by using our methodology of treatment and working with each client individually, we have been very successful in providing the necessary services to help each client regain their lives, gain meaningful employment, secure stable and permanent housing and achieve individually set goals.
