If you are looking to live in a residential home for more than three months you may be interested in living in the Transitional Housing facility called Joshua House. This is a non-profit organization that offers affordable housing and support services to those who need them the most. It is located in Tucson Arizona about two hours away from the Tucson City Airport. The residents who are on a waiting list to receive free government assistance and are in need of a temporary residence for at least three months are often referred to this facility. The waiting list can be very long but those who are placed there by an agency are usually able to find permanent housing fairly quickly.
Living at Joshua House is a great alternative to staying in a hotel or in a short-term shelter as many people who live in transitional housing have experienced. Transitional housing programs provide an excellent atmosphere for those who are struggling with addiction alcoholism depression and other mental health issues. These are not just “lazy” people who are just in need of a place to stay these are people who have found themselves in circumstances they do not feel safe in. Those who are in transitional housing programs find that they get their security back within their homes. They learn responsibility and self-control which make them less likely to return to the bad situations they were in before. Many times it is easier to stay sober if we feel safe and secure inside our own home. Our homes are where we make our home and if it is a place where we feel threatened depressed and lacking in confidence then it is likely we will return to that same place every time.
In order to find a new home in transitional housing you must first fill out an application and submit it to your local Transitional Housing Agency. When you are accepted for a placement you will be given housing instructions and you will be expected to follow the guidelines set forth in the program. After you complete your requirements you will be assigned a Housing Team and will be given specific instructions on what to expect once you arrive in your new home. These directions will help you become part of a community where you can connect with others who have the same needs as you do. This will help you achieve your goals and give you the opportunity to get back to living the way you deserve.
