HHH Transitional Housing Program

HHH Birth Certificate/ID Program 

Since opening our doors, client stabilization has been the cornerstone of HHH. In 2018, we are expanding on this mission with a new comprehensive 30 day Transitional Program that combines trauma informed peer support, crisis intervention, administrative internships, and a structured plan to transition into permanent housing.

The HHH Transitional Program is designed to stabilize clients after recent traumatic crisis and provide them with the skills, knowledge, and a tool set necessary to gain employment and take that first step of recovery for a better future. Clients are required to build a recovery plan and participate in a minimum of 4 peer mentor sessions in order to stay for the 30 days. Our goal is to instill the notion that hope for recovery is possible for everyone. We aim to provide practical mental health access and recovery support in a way that empowers those individuals the system has failed.

Unemployed individuals entering the program must intern with HHH for a minimum of four hours per week. The internships HHH offers are directly shaped to improve employment transition. Clients have one month to find employment. However the length of stay may be extended based on circumstance and performance.

This program provides funds, when available, for homeless individuals to obtain birth certificates on a first come, first serve basis. It is vital for homeless individuals to have a state ID in order to obtain benefits from the City of Tampa, (Food Stamps, Hillsborough County Health Insurance, etc.). Individuals will not get into an emergency shelter without an ID. Lastly, with an ID, homeless individuals will be able to apply for employment, which can lead to permanent housing
