The Refuge House transitional housing program provides confidential, safe housing to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and sex trafficking, and their children for up to 2 ½ years.
Our transitional program can assist you to meet your individual goals in the areas of housing, transportation, physical and mental well-being, education and career options, and, where appropriate, immigration issues and child services.
Housing may be provided at one of three program sites.
The “Extended Stay” site features family rooms located within the Leon County Emergency Shelter, and is a wonderful site for survivors and families needing 24 hour crisis intervention and the highest level of site security.
The “360” site features family rooms and apartments with in a community living house. This site is perfect for survivors and families who want to benefit from strong support from other women, and daily case management assistance.
Our most community-based site is the “TownHome Village,” where independent living is combined with Refuge House activities and events, and counseling services.
The program meets the needs of survivors for whom independence is achievable within a supportive setting. Program fees are nominal. Please contact our hotline if you are interested in applying for an opportunity in our transitional program. We look forward to meeting you!
