Transitions at Devens is a 13 unit shelter for women and children with 7 additional scattered site units for families that can include fathers. Homeless families are placed at the shelter when they have been determined eligible by the Department of Housing and Community Development. Re-housing services focus on assisting families in shelter to find permanent housing and include: developing a housing search & budget plan; providing referrals to appropriate housing services and credit counselors; ongoing case management and short- and medium-term rental subsidies when funds are available.
Once families have been housed from shelter they continue to receive stabilization case management to remain stably housed. Supportive services and case management are provided in the areas of subsidized housing search, financial education, and workshops on education, training, employment and parenting.
