After emergency shelter, some women need additional assistance to transition to independent living. Part of our Women's Village, Hawkes Transitional Residence provides 30 homeless women with private, furnished rooms.
Residents are required to have an income prior to moving in and pay a modest percentage for rent. Those women who are not employed must seek employment and are encouraged to further their education with the goal that they will find full-time work.
The curriculum at Hawkes is rigorous and all residents must be committed to rebuilding their lives by finding living wage employment and securing permanent housing. Like all of our programs, Hawkes provides the women with a genuine opportunity to improve their lives through case management services, Life Skills workshops and employment couseling, all provided in a loving, supportive environment.
Women at Hawkes Transitional Residence receive the following services:
- Shelter in private, furnished rooms
- Case management including assistance with finding long-term affordable housing and educational or vocational training
- Employment services including computer training, job coaching, and placement
- Advocacy and support for family reunification
