Shaunte has applied for the Bridge Communities Phase 2 program that is designed to provide step-down case management and financial support to our transitional housing graduates.

Shaunte is projected to graduate from the transitional housing program in June. She has applied for an apartment in Itasca that is close to her work and the kids’ schools and daycare.

As part of the Phase 2 program, Shaunte will receive rental assistance and limited case management services. The goal of this program is to help our graduates, for a short period of time, as they continue to transition to financial self-sufficiency. Shaunte has met many of her goals, including paying off all her debt and starting a savings account for her future.

Shaunte and her mentors have worked out a plan for Shaunte to utilize the Phase 2 program while her children are still in need of daycare. Within the next year or so, Shaunte will have less daycare fees and more financial resources to put towards her housing.
