Our mission is to provide safety, stability, and opportunity for families in crisis through emergency shelter and comprehensive support services.
The Greeley Transitional House is the only homeless shelter in Greeley offering emergency and transitional shelter, case management, and follow-up programs for homeless families. We are located in a 12-room condo-style facility near downtown Greeley. The shelter was established in 1985 in response to community concerns for the need to find shelter for temporarily displaced families. These families find themselves homeless after unexpected loss of employment, farm or business foreclosures, overwhelming medical bills, domestic violence, and increasingly, lack of affordable housing combined with low wages.
Whatever the reasons behind a family’s homelessness, the Greeley Transitional House provides a positive, hopeful, and supportive environment in which families in crisis can live temporarily while re-establishing their independence.
Supportive Services for Shelter Families
The following are held on a weekly basis for all in-house resident families:
- Life Skills Group Meetings (e.g. credit counseling, employment tips, nutrition counseling)
- Parenting Classes
- One-on-one meeting with Case Manager
Other GTH Programs
The Child/Adolescent Programprovides a supportive environment for the children/youth living at the facility which includes age appropriate developmental programs, case management, and referrals and advocacy. We also work with families to make sure that children are attending school and that tutoring and transportation needs are met.
A Follow-up Case Management Program is available to residents who successfully complete the initial in-house stay at the shelter. This program provides resource referrals, advocacy, support, and encouragement to families for up to two years to further increase their self-sufficiency.
