"Housing is the cornerstone of the plan, which proposes building 3,193 units of transitional housing and 1,453 additional beds in emergency shelters. Once the housing is underway, the commission wants to implement a better network of support and services for the occupants - such as substance- abuse and mental-health counseling, medical care, job training and parenting skills...

Transitional housing can be semi-permanent or permanent housing, usually coupled with financial assistance for people earning less than $15,050, or 30 percent of the area median income."
