Transitional Housing Program
BHA sets aside seven apartments for homeless families as part of the DHCD-funded Transitional Housing Program (THP). Together with our partner agencies BHA provides transitional housing and extensive support services to homeless families as they work toward self-sufficiency and housing stabilization. Participant families occupy these units for a 9-12 month period while they receive services like counseling from social workers, connections to resources such as child care, transportation, education/employment opportunities, personal money management training, and more in order to develop their self-sufficiency skills. The goal of the program is to help these families achieve self-sufficiency so that they can become successful renters in the future. Once the participant successfully meets their self-sufficiency goals, they may enter into a traditional lease with the BHA or they may seek permanent housing elsewhere.
Candidates for this program are referred to BHA by the Commonwealth's Department of Transitional Assistance.
