Our Transitional Housing Programs are available for men referred by the CT Court Support Services Division (CSSD). The houses each have 29-33 beds and residents stay for up to 90 days. They are designed to feel more like a “home” than a program, which helps the residents to feel comfortable and safe.
While in a Transitional House, residents take ownership for their living environment. The men are responsible for cleaning their rooms and share chores to keep the kitchen, recreation and common rooms neat and orderly.
Residents have access to in-house wellness sessions, such as mindfulness and meditation, preparing nutritious meals on a budget, and healthy relationships. They also give back by participating in community service projects such as the Special Olympics and Hartford Marathon.
The majority of residents attend groups at CPA’s local Alternative in the Community (AIC) program and in the community to address their individualized needs. In preparation for their eventual departure, staff assist residents with finding a job and a place to live.
