Transitional Housing

Transitional Housing is just one component of a continuum of support required by those affected by homelessness.

Transitional Housing is different than homeless shelters. Emergency shelters provide immediate accommodation for those who have nowhere to live for a few days or weeks. In Halton, the Lighthouse Shelter in Oakville or Halton Women’s Place offers emergency housing.

Emergency shelters are short-term with time limits of between 30 and 45 days’ duration, which is not enough to recover from the trauma of a housing crisis and be able to move on to independent housing.

Other providers, like Habitat for Humanity, take independent living to the next level beyond transitional housing with permanent homes.
