Transitional housing is two-year housing combined with supportive services to help ensure the long-term stability of families. While in transitional housing programs, participants receive ongoing assistance with a broad range of needs. For many local citizens, transitional housing bridges the gap between homelessness and self-sufficiency.
Olympic Community Action Programs provides a two year transitional housing program for up to 10 individuals who have completed inpatient treatment for alcohol or drug abuse. This program is designed for individuals who would be released into homelessness at the end of their treatment. Currently this program is the only one of its type in the state of Washington and has experienced a high degree of success.
In April of 2006 OlyCAP opened the long awaited South Seven Senior Village. The project was spawned over coffee years ago when the Community United Methodist Church in Port Hadlock realized that some of their land holdings next to their church could go towards affordable housing. The Senior Village, comprised of 15 one story units, is just the first of three phases with multi-family units planned for the future.
