Private accomodations for up to 125 people, 24/7 security, and a positive learning environment for healing and growth.
Comprehensive workforce and personal development classes from computer programming to life coaching.
All residents are clean, sober, and highly employable. We do not accomodate individuals with severe mental illness or addiction.
Transition Centers provide temporary shelter, work training, and counseling services for up to 6 months for people transitioning through major life changes. They are the perfect solution for helping the homeless or anyone else stuck in poverty, who feels the American dream has passed them by.
In return for free housing, center residents work temporarily on community service projects, as well as, neighborhood watch, and street cleaning programs. Because public safety and wellness is our top priority, we only take in residents who are drug-free, have no history of mental illness, and who are determined to working their way out of the difficult situation they're in. We estimate this makes up 40% of the homeless population.
Transition Centers are just a concept right now, so we need your help in making them a reality! We're currently looking for land in San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, Venice, Santa Monica, Los Angeles, or New York to launch our pilot.
Transition Centers are 90% cheaper than homeless shelters and offer a best environment for people looking to get back control of their life. Nothing else even comes close.
Transition Centers can be placed temporarily anywhere there is unused land, such as parking lots, under bridges, land awaiting development, and land owned by churches and cities.
We utilize unused land, offers tax incentives to land owners, and improve neighborhoods through various community service projects, which residents crowdfund and complete.
A year ago, I was crucified by the media for venting my displeasure with the state of homelessness in San Francisco. I was insensitive with my words, but I wasn't wrong that our system fails to address the needs of the community. With little faith in things improving, I took it upon myself to spend the last year researching homelessness, so I could create new solutions to improve things around America.
Transition Centers are the brainchild of that journey -- bringing together insights learned from sleeping in homeless encampments, a year's worth of research, hundreds of conversations with homeless individuals, and listening to the concerns of the community, who do not want homeless shelters nearby.
Along with myself, I've gained a lot of great friends and advisors along the way who are equally as passionate about ending homelessness in America. We hope you'll join us for the ride.
