O.U.R Mission Home Offers Long Term Transitional Housing

Homelessness can be a difficult time for adults. But the situation becomes even more heartbreaking when children are involved. O.U.R. Mission Home is a 202-bed long term transitional housing facility accommodating single women, single mothers with children, single fathers with children and husband/wife with children.

The facility’s clean, home-like atmosphere provides residents private and semi-private rooms and bathrooms at no charge. Homeless women, children and families live in the transitional Home until they are able to regain their footing and live a self-sufficient lifestyle once again.

O.U.R. Mission Home’s program consists of the following:

  • Residents are required to successfully complete Victorious Life Class and Career Learning Center requirements
  • Residents are required to either be actively pursuing further education or gainfully employed
  • Residents are required to save 75% of all income in their Mission savings account (100% of the funds are released to the resident upon move-out as down payment for housing)
  • Residents are required to complete their daily chores around the Mission and keep their rooms clean at all times
  • Residents are required to attend weekly chapel services and become actively involved in the local church of their choice

Each resident of O.U.R. Mission Home is assigned a case manager who helps map out a customized program for permanent recovery and walks with the family until they can stand on their own.  While the Mission provides basic living services including meals, laundry facilities and daycare, the heart of our program is Christian mentoring.
