Joint Transitional Housing and Rapid Re-Housing
This transitional housing program serves women and their minor children who are fleeing a domestic violence situation. We provide safe housing in apartments that are fully furnished in confidential locations throughout San Diego County. Crisis House supports families recovering from their trauma by providing individual and group counseling, case management, health care, food, and other crucial support services. Survivors learn how to form non-violent family units, identify red flags in toxic relationships, provide emotional support to other survivors, rebuild self-esteem, and set healthy boundaries. Women are empowered to make positive and healthy lifestyle changes. They transition to being independent and self-sufficient by increasing income and securing permanent housing when they graduate from the program.
Ninety-nine percent (99%) of the families who graduate from transitional housing are placed into permanent housing through rapid re-housing. The goal is to support the household to eliminate barriers that impede their access to housing. We have a long-term partnership with Soroptimist International of Poway and North San Diego who furnish and subsidize the rent of several units in a partnership with Community Housing Works. Soroptimists also mentor the women during and after they leave the program. Families are provided with financial assistance and case management as our Housing Locator helps to find safe and affordable housing.
