Freedom House is proud to announce the grand opening of its Transitional Housing Program. Transitional Housing is for survivors of violence to have a place to live with their children, while they get back on their feet. They will receive intensive assistances from Freedom House Advocates during their stay, so they can achieve self-sufficiency. Families will be able to stay in their apartments while working on their plan for up to 2 years. Transitional Housing usually is needed after emergency shelter. These four, fully furnished apartments have been decorated by items donated by the community. Parker County’s ZONTA club took on one of the apartments and it is especially warm and welcoming. Freedom House’s advocates and volunteers made the other three beautiful. Freedom House’s Board of Directors has worked hard to make this dream a reality.
