Transitional Housing: Kairos House and St. Elizabeth's Recovery Residence
These residences provide a point of entry for adults who have experienced homelessness and who have special needs. Services include private rooms, common living spaces, group meals, 24-hour staffing, and intensive case management for all residents. The residences provide specialized programs to meet the needs of residents with behavioral health issues. Most residents also begin working on education and employment goals so they can make the transition to more independent housing and greater self-sufficiency. There are a total of 62 units in our two transitional residences:
