Transitional Supportive Housing: Pilot Program
After a few weeks of couch-surfing and avoiding the shelter system, Wilson, our new program participant, is now a part of our transitional, supportive housing in the Bronx. Wilson is already working part-time, while gathering information to pursue his education in fitness training. Our wellness program gives him the opportunity to be connected with the community and to get the support he needs. Congratulations, Wilson!
