There is no one road on the journey out of homelessness — different situations, challenges and life stages require specialized resources. Pine Street offers distinct transitional programs for working men and women, pregnant women and individuals working to overcome addiction.
WORKING MEN’S AND WOMEN’S PROGRAMs
The Working Men’s and Women’s Programs provide transitional housing for individuals who are employed either part- or full-time and saving a percentage of their earnings to eventually access permanent housing. Those accepted in the program agree to maintain sobriety, open a bank account to save for an apartment and meet with a counselor weekly. Employment assistance and support groups are offered on-site.
PREGNANT WOMEN’S PROGRAM
The Pregnant Women’s Program at the Women’s Inn helps expectant homeless women find housing, provides support with prenatal care and prepares the women to care for a new infant. Participants are in varying stages of pregnancy when they enter the program and may have a history of domestic violence, mental illness or substance abuse.
SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT SERVICES
Pine Street provides substance abuse services in both the men's and women's shelters. On-site substance abuse counselors identify individual treatment needs when guests check in, provide short-term assessments and interventions and ensure referrals to appropriate treatment programs.
