What is Transitional Housing?
Transitional Housing is an intermediate step between emergency crisis shelter and permanent housing. It is more long-term, service-intensive, and private than the emergency shelter. It is meant to provide a safe, supportive environment where residents can overcome the trauma of domestic violence, gain the skills and means to afford their own housing, and begin to rebuild their support network.
Why Transitional Housing at YCC?
There is limited attainable housing in Morgan and Weber counties. Transitional housing reduces burdens on healthcare, first responders, the judicial system, child protective services, reliance on government support, homelessness, and crime. More importantly, it reduces the chances of a victim returning to their abuser.
YCC programming and services already support 9 of the top 10 priorities of the Local Homelessness Council. This project will fulfill that final priority in our community.
