In its effort to support the needs of the homeless individual population in Massachusetts, CSR's transition house provides guests with food, clothing and shelter in a manner consistent with the principles of dignity, respect and compassion for the person. Safe and secure, our transitional program enables guests to regain self-esteem, develop life skills and financial independence, while remaining sober, healthy and connected to their communities.
CSR's case management team works seven days a week conducting assessments, developing service plans, providing support regarding substance abuse, mental health and HIV/AIDS, and assisting guests in obtaining employment and housing.
The initial goal of the program is to provide a friendly and supportive environment where guests’ basic needs are met. The longer-term goal is to transition guests into a more independent living situation, and to help them become contributing members in their communities and to society.
