Q: Why a halfway house?
A: A halfway house is place where people can be supported by others who are in similar life phases. They can come home each day to a group of people who know exactly what they are walking through. Clients are closely monitored to be sure they are making the right decisions and given opportunities to change the trajectory of their lives on their own. Clients grow as individuals, begin to believe in themselves, and are able to reenter society.
