What is Transitional Housing?

Transitional Housing is the completion of a process that guides homeless people into permanent housing. The program requires the clients to seek job training, employment, continuing education, assessment counseling and permanent housing.

Almost without exception, when the clients leave the program, they are moving into their own apartments.
“ESHC is not a handout. It's a hand up.
We help homeless families who want to help themselves.”

Our Mission

The mission of ESHC of St. Johns County is to truly make a difference in the lives of homeless families by providing the opportunity for them to remain intact, stabilize their lives, save towards affordable permanent housing and break the cycle of homelessness.
