The primary purpose or mission of transitional housing environments is to help the resident become a productive member of society while also helping the resident to establish a valid rental history. Our transitional homes provide a drug free environment and foster a peer driven atmosphere.
We currently operate two Transitional Homes for the men of St. Benedict’s transitioning from the facility, to the outside world. These two homes, the Good Samaritan Home and the Foundation Home, house seven men each at a time, and require monitored random drug screening while also providing a 2-year transition period. These homes also provide low-cost rent, case management and accountability, while establishing a credible rental history. This, then allows our men to overcome financial barriers, save money, obtain vehicles, strengthen sobriety, return to school, overcome legal situations, learn accountability and responsibility, and thus, creates an independent member of society.
