Transitional Housing

Our transitional housing program, called New Life Transitional Housing, is a continuum of services available to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault who need a bridge to self-sufficiency and permanent housing.  

If you need help making the transition, our transitional housing might be right for you.

About the program

The New Life Transitional Housing program is based on a holistic, victim-centered model where survivors may participate in our program for up to two years.  As a participant, you live within The Julian Center complex in a protected environment and are offered a range of supportive services.  You choose the services you need based on your personal situation that will help you move into permanent housing and succeed in achieving self-sufficiency.

A program director, case manager, and children’s advocate are available to help you reach your goals and gain access to services such as counseling, support groups, legal services, and safety planning as well as practical services such as child care, employment services, housing searches, transportation, and much more.

Program goals

Our transitional housing program is a comprehensive, therapeutic and educational program designed to incorporate awareness, accountability, responsibility and empowerment.  

As a participant you are encouraged to focus on your personal objectives including, but not limited to, achieving self-determination, increasing your skills and/or income, obtaining and remaining in permanent housing, and enhancing your parental and relational skills.

Living accommodations

The transitional program includes eleven housing units.  Each unit is similar to living in a studio apartment.  

The units are equipped with 4-6 bunk beds, dressers, desk, closet, and a private bathroom with a tub and shower.  Your meals - breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks - are prepared for you and served in the multipurpose room where you dine with fellow residents. 

Common areas include a centrally located laundry room; a lounge with a television, phone, exercise equipment, computer and internet access; and, an outside playground and garden area.  Single women without children may share a unit.

Among other programs and amenities, we also offer onsite child mentoring and tutoring sessions, legal services, counseling, and a medical clinic.
