Thank you for your interest in the transitional housing program at Elizabeth Gregory Home. In partnership with HomeStep and LIHI, we provide a seven bedroom home for single homeless women, where they can live in a safe environment. While our offices and the Day Center are located in the University District area in Seattle, the location of the Transitional Housing Program is in the Maple leaf neighborhood in North Seattle.
Elizabeth Gregory Home provides a safe place for women leaving shelters to find the support and guidance they need to get back on their feet. We offer supportive services for six months to two years to prepare them to live independently and thus reduce their risk of returning to the streets. Professionally trained staffs from Elizabeth Gregory Home and HomeStep coordinate the program and manage the facility. We provide comprehensive case-management which includes working with the women on their self identified life goals. Elizabeth Gregory Home functions as a household, with residents sharing the responsibilities and support of a community experience. Prospective residents are interviewed and selected by a careful intake process that ensures that our guests are committed to setting goals, developing self-esteem, and breaking the cycle of homelessness. Elizabeth Gregory Home endeavors to be an important part of the community and a good neighbor to those around us.
For questions about the program, please contact us at (206) 729-0262 or visit us in the Day Center Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Once again, thank you for your interest in Elizabeth Gregory Home.
