Transitional Living Program 

St. Elizabeth House Transitional Living Program is home to 46 homeless adults who live in single rooms for up to two years while they identify and face complex issues that caused them to become homeless.  Working closely with case managers, individuals set and meet goals that will return them to self-sufficiency and independence.  While living at St. Elizabeth House, in addition to providing intensive case management, individuals are served three meals a day. Mercy also works with clients to prepare them for employment and job placement, with a final goal of finding permanent housing.
