Transitional Outreach Program Participants (TOPPS)

Both staff and clients know that simply obtaining housing is not always the end of the story. There may still be obstacles to overcome as these women work toward renewed wellness and self-sustainability. The Transitional Outreach Program Participants (TOPPs) Program is designed to address the spiritual, mental, social, financial and personal challenges of clients who were homeless but have transitioned into their own homes.

Many clients have endured generational poverty, mental illness, substance abuse, domestic violence and/or personal tragedies. It is the goal of the TOPPs Program to equip them with the skills and resources needed to maintain self-sufficient and to make positive contributions to the community. STH participants attend therapeutic and life skills classes that teach them how to move toward a life of stability and prosperity.
