Transitional Shelter Programs
We Help Stabilize People.
Our transitional shelter programs help people of all genders break the cycle of life on the street. With the support of partnering agencies, our multidisciplinary team offers non-judgmental acceptance, compassion and care, and helps people:
- Connect with case managers
- Manage physical and mental health needs and addictions
- Develop life skills
Many of the people who enter Shepherds of Good Hope transitional shelters face barriers to accessing housing; it is our goal to assist them in transitioning into stable, permanent homes.
Shepherds of Good Hope currently operates seven transitional shelter programs:
Our 54-bed Women’s Shelter supports homeless women and gender-diverse adults, with a goal of helping them attain permanent housing.
Our 90-bed Men’s Shelter supports homeless men and gender-diverse adults, with a goal of helping them attain permanent housing.
MANAGED ALCOHOL PROGRAM (MAP)
Our 24-bed MAP is an innovative harm-reduction program for alcohol-dependent, chronically-homeless individuals.
TRANSITIONAL EMEGERGENCY SHELTER PROGRAM (TESP)
Our 49-bed TESP supports chronically homeless individuals with complex needs, and those who cannot access other shelter services.
WOMEN’S SPECIAL CARE UNIT (WSCU)
Our 16-bed WSCU offers specialized services to women with complex physical health, mental health and/or addiction issues.
RAPID HOUSING AND EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM (RHEP)
Our RHEP helps casually unemployed or underemployed homeless individuals quickly return to sustainable housing and full employment.
