Mission Statement

Transition House provides an opportunity for people who are homeless and addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, to maintain sobriety and become productive, self-sustaining members of the community.

The mission of Transition House is to provide a permanent solution to the problem of homelessness in metro Atlanta. We do this by addressing the most insidious cause of chronic homelessness---alcohol and other drug (AOD) addiction. Transition House provides recovery programs and supportive transitional housing so that homeless persons may become sober, independent and productive members of our community. While our mission is to serve the homeless, our aim is to ensure that they acquire the resiliency and skills to leave our program as self-sufficient contributors to society. To support this mission, Transition House provides relapse prevention programs to three homeless populations: men, women, and women with children.

Description

Transition House, Inc. is a long-term residential, aftercare recovery program where homeless persons learn the life skills and acquire the support needed to become sober, independent and productive members of our community. Our 3/4 houses are located throughout Metro Atlanta. We are a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization that relies on assistance from volunteers, corporations, foundations and government agencies to continue our important work.

Transition House's structured, drug and alcohol-free environment includes:

  • Comfortable, Safe Housing
  • Counseling and Case Management
  • Reduced-cost MARTA Cards
  • Phone Service
  • Utilities
  • Certified AOD Addiction Counselors
  • Supplemental Food
  • Life Skills Training
  • Supportive Recovery Services
  • Savings Program
  • Dedicated Professional Staff

Men, women and women with children are eligible to enter the program if they are verifiably homeless by HUD guidelines and have abstained from alcohol and / or drugs for at least 30 days.
