Doorstep Project, Inc. mission is to provide affordable transitional housing for domestic violence victims upon launch from Bridges Domestic Violence Center.
In collaboration with Bridges Domestic Violence Center, Doorstep transitional housing gives clients the opportunity to stay in the county in which they are established in their neighborhoods, workplaces and schools.
In May 2017, a group of people with a heart for those in need, banded together to solve a community problem. Families were entering domestic violence shelters and unable to find local housing upon completion of the shelter program. The shelter was full of residents that wanted to re-enter the community but couldn’t find anywhere to live, which caused the shelter to not have emergency beds available.
With that, a few dedicated individuals decided to form the non-profit, Doorstep Project, Inc. to provide transitional housing for up to one year for survivors of domestic violence. This would also allow them not to be re-victimized by forcing the families to move away from their support systems (schools, doctors, churches, etc.) . Giving the families time to re-establish themselves in jobs, finish educational goals and know what they can afford was a dream turned to reality.
Currently, Doorstep Project has two homes and has a goal of six homes to assist families in our community. To learn more about how you can get involved, contact us.
