FFH Transitional Housing is in its planning stages, with hope that our multi-unit site will be operational during the spring of 2017. We expect to be able to house up to eight families, or a total of up to 30 individuals, in a central Fort Collins location.
This program is for those families who have demonstrated consistent success in our case management program and, while not needing the full support of our emergency shelter program, will benefit from graduated housing support to achieve long-term, sustainable self-sufficiency. Examples of reasons for needing this graduated support include time to increase financial savings, achieve particular housing needs, and address child or parent medical needs.
Transitional housing will allow those families with higher need, and yet demonstrating continuous progress, the extra time and support they need to ensure long-term self-sufficiency. FFH’s ability to provide the full continuum of care will also enable it to reduce waitlist times for its Overnight Shelter Program and thus reduce the trauma of family homelessness.
