Transitional Living Program


The mission of the HWAM Transitional Living Program is to create a trauma-informed, culturally aware and safe environment for our Transitional Aged Young Adults to utilize their individual strengths to end the cycle of poverty and become pillars of the community.

About the program

The program will focus on the Four Core Outcomes to end homelessness, including;
- Stable Housing
- Permanent Connections
- Social / Emotional Well-being
- Education / Employment
The big picture is to give our young adults a safe home to experience unconditional love, have caring and supportive adults in their lives and to let them know that their lives have worth and value, and to help them push through hard times to become the adults they were created to be.
