Since the ultimate goal is not just to provide temporary emergency shelter, but to transition families from Reynolds Home into their own home, the women work with the staff around a three-pronged axis: financial stability, family cohesion and wellness. They learn how to secure various sources of income and a permanent fulltime job, to manage their time and budget to have quality time with their children, to make use of community resources and private counseling and to enroll their children in family health clinics to insure continued preventive health care without resorting to hospital emergency rooms. The staff remains available and alert to the needs of every family that has transitioned to their own home, especially during the first year of transitioning, thus obliterating obstacles that might lead to another episode of homelessness.
