Following in the footsteps of THA 104 and 110, Sarah's Friends' first transitional housing unit, 114, will be looking much differently come August. Through the financial assistance of the Bryan Area Foundation, the Bryan AmVets, and donations made in honor of Scott Smith, Sarah's Friends has finally been able to provide needed renovations to this unit in order to create a safe, healing atmosphere for survivors to call "home". Beginning in June, this project is nearing completion and will be available for local survivors within the month of August.
Sarah's Friends' Transitional Housing Assistance program has delivered longer-term housing and supportive services to individuals and families affected by domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking for over a decade. These services provide a crucial link in the continuum of care for those experiencing a victimization, as transitional housing provides a critical steppingstone towards safety and self-sufficiency for families who have been homeless as a result of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking.
Transitional Housing Assistance through Sarah's Friends provides family apartments for survivors and their dependents for a minimum of six months with possible extensions up to two years, if needed. Supportive services available are aimed at self-empowerment, improved employment potential, increased opportunities for economic stability, strengthened skills in financial planning, family budgeting, and effective home management.
All units are fully furnished, pet-friendly, and ready to act as a safety net for survivors as they work towards accomplishing their individual goals of self-efficiency and healing.
