Amos House opened last spring, offering transitional housing for men. Homeless men live there while trying to find work. They are paired with a case manager who helps them address problems they are having find work and sustainable housing. The men are allowed to stay at Amos House for up to 6 months. So far, twelve men have gone through the program since it started. According to the Human Resources Development Council, the group that manages Amos House, the program is a success.
""I would say an overwhelming majority of our residents have been able to find employment within the first few months" says Sara Savage of HRDC.
Now HRDC is adding a new wing to Amos House to provide space for women. The new wing will have two rooms for women with seven beds and an apartment for an on-site manager.
