If you are a homeless single adult, family or youth, the Human Services Agency may be able to provide transitional housing to help you move from the street to permanent housing. Clients using transitional housing may stay in the housing for six months to two years and receive intensive services such as education, job training and placement, substance abuse counseling, parenting classes and child care services. They usually pay 30 percent of their income for services and housing.

Transitional housing is provided by nonprofit partners of the Human Services Agency. To apply, contact these agencies directly at the phone numbers listed below:
