We empower and equip individuals facing homelessness due to prior convictions.
The H.O.M.E. Transitional Network uses innovative strategies to provide transitional living and vocational career/entrepreneurship opportunities for individuals who face barriers to employment.
In collaboration with our Rural Communities Partners across North Carolina, we provide stable temporary living sites for people looking to reestablish themselves within their communities of choice.
YOUR NEXT STEP
We know reentering society can feel chaotic and difficult. If not managed properly, these stressors can cause recidivism. That’s why we offer housing and vocational support that will help you get back on your feet.
For populations who are most at risk for criminal justice involvement, supportive or affordable housing has been shown to be a cost-effective public investment, lowering corrections and jail expenditures and freeing up funds for other public safety investments."

Do you need help accessing transitional housing?
Your prior sentence is history. You deserve a fair opportunity to reestablish your life, despite your past convictions. That's why we offer transitional housing support—no rental agreements involved.
MORE ABOUT US

What do we stand for?
We are all independent service providers, businesses or organizations with a shared belief in working together to address the core causes of the homelessness epidemic.
We are knowledgeable and communicate clearly in order to provide the best service, and alleviate the issues contributing to the displacement of those we work with.
We have started construction of tiny homes at 210 Bailey Lane, Vanceboro, that will ultimately be mobile and utilize spaces offered by rural communities and landowners. The project is set to launch in February 2021.
How we're different from other social programs
WE TEACH YOU TO PLAN
Funding is usually the first conversation you'll have when you enter social programs, but not ours. There is no rental fee associated with the program, because we work with you towards "ownership".
Our first conversation will be about your plans — because we know freedom begins with a plan.
