Transitional Housing

Jennifer successfully completed the Transitional Housing Program and will be moving into her very own apartment that she located and acquired on her own. Jennifer has participated in the THP since August 2010 by utilizing subsidized housing and individualized case management to address her barriers to self-sufficiency. Since then, she has increased her self-sufficiency skills immensely and has shown great self-determination in making wise and sound decisions for herself and her son. Jennifer has recently completed one year of full-time education at Western Technical College and has plans to transfer credits to a university to pursue a four year degree next year. Jennifer works part-time as a supportive home health care worker and is an actively involved member of the WTC Campus Events Committee. Jennifer has recently completed two parenting classes to improve her parenting skills and has met individually with a credit counselor to incorporate a workable budget into her busy life. YWCA La Crosse is very proud of Jennifer’s accomplishments and wishes her great success in the future.
