In some cases, a "transition in place" option allows families to continue living in the same complex (if not the same unit) where their transitional housing unit is located when they are ready to move to permanent housing. In other cases, the permanent housing option is either public housing or private rental housing supported by a tenant-based voucher subsidy. Included are post-domestic violence shelter housing programs that make affordable rental housing (or other accommodations) available to women, generally those who are coming directly out of a domestic violence shelter or other crisis shelter, often in apartment complexes owned by the shelter.||Centre||Centre Safe Transitional Housing||Centre Safe|

Housing Program: Provides a safe and secure environment in which residents are able to focus on achieving educational and life goals. Their model includes a private room for each family and shared living space among all resident families.
Education Program: Consists of two tracks: GED and Post-Secondary. Upon acceptance, a woman without her high school diploma will be enrolled in their on-site GED school where she will receive a written IEP (Individual Education Plan) and one-on-one instruction. A woman who enters their program having completed high school or previously attained her GED will be enrolled in their post-secondary track.
Children’s Program: Focuses on the direct needs of each child that enters Milagro House. During the first few weeks of residency, their Children’s Health Liaison provides a developmental assessment to make sure each child is developmentally on track. If a delay is recorded, that child will receive a referral to Early Intervention or the IU13. In addition, the Children’s Health Liaison provides other instruction including, but not limited to medical and dental referrals and “ages and stages” instruction.
