Transitional Living Community
A once in a lifetime opportunity for a single mom to own her own home within a safe, loving community. A small, private community where soul care can begin to bring hope and healing.
Ownership has proven to empower and positively change someone's future forever. These women will be provided with accountability, structure and spiritual shepherding while living in a small, private community with other single moms and children.
Beautiful U's Transitional Living Community is designed to empower these single, unwed women through continued education, vocational & hands on experience. A combination of tiny home ownership, financially supported by a profitable, sustainable urban farm. By using principles from both the Tiny Home movement and Permaculture, we will be providing a home for the homeless, and the opportunity to build a stable future for themselves and their children.
Without intervention the children of our participants are:
- 4 times more likely than non-homeless children to be abused, neglected or abandoned
- 3 times more likely to be placed in remedial education
- 10 times more likely to continue the cycle of poverty
- Sons of teen mothers are almost 3 times more likely than sons of non-teens to become incarcerated
- Daughters of teen moms are 83% more likely themselves to become mothers by age 18
Each mom entering the program will be given the opportunity to begin, finish or explore their educational options. Everyone learns differently so we want to embrace the way each mom learns in order for her to reach her greatest potential.
The program will require mom's to participate & complete: parenting classes, nutrition, pre-postnatal care, living skills, financing, healthy coping & relationship skills, yoga & art therapy, counseling and bible study.
Each mom will be assigned a case manager who will help develop, design, and implement an individualized "life plan".
