Elizabeth’s Transitional Home opened its doors in January of 2013 with a mission to serve as a transitional home for single women and women with minor children. This home is a place where women can come and receive assistance during their journey to self-sufficiency. We have eight open beds for long term residents. The average stay lasts between 6-12 months. During their stay, we provide case management to help them work weekly on reaching long term goals. In our case management we work on financial literacy, time management, healthy boundaries and relationships, and other relevant topics. We also refer to additional support services. A major part of our program is the social support that is provided by volunteers. Graduates go on to be positive, contributing members of their community without the stress of homelessness being just around the corner.
Elizabeth’s Village began an after-school program for children served through our programs in August of 2018. Students in our program receive one-on-one tutoring that focuses on getting them back on track within their education, as well as working on basic life skills such as how to cope with stress or how to be healthy. Homelessness is a traumatic experience for a child, and our hope is that this after-school program helps bring stability back into the child’s life, and gives them the love and care that they need. If you are interested in being a tutor, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to have you!
This program reaches out into the community and meets women where they are. Our Outreach Coordinator works with women and children who are at an imminent risk of becoming homeless. To attempt to prevent them from losing their housing, we connect them to resources in our community. In order to encourage change, we provide them with case management where they are at. If you need assistance and outreach services, call our Outreach Coordinator, Jamie Muth, at 502-642-0125.
Elizabeth’s Village is currently undergoing a feasibility study to assess the need for domestic violence services in Scott County. We have a desire to provide support to individuals in their own community. Be looking out for important updates here soon!
We currently serve survivors through our Seeking Solace Suitcase Program. Through a partnership with the Georgetown Police Department and PNC Foundation, we have packed suitcases with resources for survivors such as toiletries, a first aid kit, a book, and a resource guide with information on different agencies that can be of use to them when leaving an abusive partner. If you, or someone you know, may need a suitcase then please call 502-863-0800.
