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:
The Self-Sufficiency 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
