Our approach to housing is to provide a comfortable and clean environment to assist in recovering life before homelessness. We decided that our homes would not be clinical or make people feel herded into a cramped location. Instead, we have homes that provide space and privacy for individuals struggling to get back on their feet.
Every program is different, but our program seeks to be the standard bearer for how transitional living homes should operate and how to treat individuals with care and concern.

Transitions for life Foundation, a 501C3 organization, began its' journey as an idea. An idea built on the premise that "everyone deserves to live with dignity". Its' Founders, Jeffrey Harris and Sheoni Givens agreed that more needed to be done to help people who had become homeless, and for the most part, for reasons that were simply out of their control.
Both Jeffrey and Sheoni knew there was a better way to provide transitional living that would allow people to reinvent themselves and build themselves and all that was needed was an opportunity and a second chance.
They decided to provide that opportunity. With a combined experience of over 40 years in group home management and housing, they started Transitions For Life simply to provide programs that would develop the whole person.
Whether the challenge is drug abuse, mental health, or even domestic violence, anyone who needs help and wants to change their life can participate in the programs offered.
