About once per quarter our Mission
Ministry hosts a collection for Transitional Housing. Many probably wonder
what Transitional Housing is? where did it come
from? why are we supporting it? … so here we go. Hopefully this will help answer some of
Lafayette Transitional Housing
Center, Inc. is a non-profit organization to foster self-sufficiency for
the homeless, particularly families with children. The organization was
started in 1988, and is comprised of four separate programs:
· Family Program
· Singles Program
· Lincoln Center
Supportive Housing Program
The goal of Transitional Housing is moving families from
homelessness to self-sufficiency within 90 days. In exchange for
rent/utility-free housing, residents are required by written agreement to
work full time, obey the program guidelines, and attend volunteer taught
classes in life skills, employment, community living, and budgeting.
LTHC receives funding through the
Department of Housing & Urban Development, United Way, other
organizations, private donations and fundraisers.
UCB helps by collecting items to
equip an apartment for a family to live in temporarily until they can move
to a more permanent residence.
