Transitional Housing Program
Survivors who are ready to leave Sojourner House or other temporary housing need safe, affordable spaces for themselves and their children. Many have limited or no resources and lots of questions about what to do next:
- How do find a place where I will feel safe ?
- How can I find out what I need to know about the rental process?
- How do find a place I can afford?
- What will I need to get a lease?
- What can I do for myself (and my children) to continue healing?
WCSC’s Transitional Housing Program (THP) serves low-income survivors of domestic or dating violence, sexual assault or stalking in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The program offers assistance with housing stability and becoming independent by providing:
