Transitional Housing Sites

Occasionally, clients are ready to graduate from the full-service shelter and support offered by LifeMoves, but are not yet able to locate or achieve stable housing.

To address this gap, LifeMoves offers three transitional shelter sites. Transitional shelter offers rent-free living and allows residents to continue saving money while they work towards self-sufficiency.

Transitional Shelter

  • Alexander House
  • Graduate House
  • Stevens House

Permanent Supportive Housing

The LifeMoves mission is to return our clients to stable, self-sufficient housing.

While many of our clients achieve this successful outcome, a small segment of our clients is unable to become self-sufficient.

For chronically homeless individuals, or individuals unable to achieve self-sufficiency, LifeMoves offers three permanent supportive housing sites. Each location provides zero cost rent to unemployed residents, and extremely low rent (1/3 of a client’s income) to employed residents. Clients are not required to work, engage in case management, or receive support services. Residents are treated with dignity and as tenants, with full tenant rights.

Permanent Supportive Housing

  • Triplex

Supportive SERVICES

Through intensive, personalized case management, LifeMoves provides holistic supportive services to build a foundation for long-term success. This personalized case management and holistic support model are crucial components of our work in returning clients to self-sufficiency.

Housing & Employment

To ensure the long-term success of our clients, LifeMoves has a variety of programs to assist our clients in their search for employment and self-sustained housing. A dedicated team of housing specialists, employment specialists, and benefit specialists on-staff support our clients in their diligent efforts to return to self-sufficiency.

LifeMoves employment programs include:

  • Career skills development
  • Resume workshops
  • Job search support

LifeMoves housing services include:

  • Rapid Re-Housing programs
  • Assistance locating affordable housing
  • Housing benefits and rental applications

Education Programs & Workshops

LifeMoves education programs and workshops help our clients improve their overall life skills and holistic well-being. Education programs are offered to all clients and are tailored to the specific client population at each site.

Health & Wellness Workshops:

Workshops are offered to all LifeMoves clients to improve overall healthy behaviors. Workshops focus on a wide range of topics including nutrition, life skills, anger management, smoking cessation, and more.

Financial Literacy Programs:

Financial literacy programs are crucial to the short and long-term success of our clients. Educating clients on the importance of saving money, budgeting, and overall improved financial management helps achieve short-term goals of paying off debt and saving money to return to housing, and long-term goals of remaining stable by better managing finances.

Behavioral Health Programs

LifeMoves clients are often exposed to significant trauma as a result of experiencing homelessness, in addition to any underlying behavioral health issues they may be struggling with. LifeMoves provides clinical psychological services to help our clients build a foundation of mental health that is needed to return to self-sufficiency.

The LifeMoves Behavioral Health Program provides comprehensive, integrated therapeutic services and support from a Trauma-Focused, Mindfulness-Based orientation. The program is designed to foster mental and emotional wellness, enhance interpersonal capacity, improve decision-making processes, and build the ability to engage in positive behaviors that increase beneficial outcomes.

The Behavioral Health program is offered to children, teens, families, Veterans, adults, and seniors at LifeMoves shelter sites in individual and group therapy sessions from doctoral-level psychology graduate students who are supervised by licensed clinical psychologists.
