Families that are homeless or facing imminent eviction are the primary beneficiaries of transitional housing and emergency shelters. The goal of transitional housing is to ensure families and individuals live independently and transition into long term, permanent housing or apartments. It is meant to provide a safe, supportive environment where residents can overcome trauma, begin to address the issues that led to homelessness or kept them homeless, and begin to rebuild their support network.” Within this year alone, PTS has assisted more than 100 individuals with emergency housing to help them remain crime free.
