In addition to the emergency shelter option, the Women’s Resource Center offers transitional housing for adults and children fleeing domestic violence. Families who leave the emergency shelter and desire a supportive living environment have the option of applying for transitional housing apartments before stepping out on their own. The transitional program, Cornerstone, includes seven apartments arranged in a community setting.
At Cornerstone, staff members work with residents to identify barriers, set goals and take steps to achieve their aspirations. Counseling, support groups, community resource assistance, legal advocacy and transportation also are offered to residents.
Children who stay at Cornerstone receive one-on- one attention with our staff. The WRC Children’s Program staff assess the needs of each child and provide therapeutic, educational, and recreational services during their stay.
