Transistional Services

The Transitional Service Program is for persons 18 years and older home or returning home after a period of incarceration, veterans, and the homeless in a critical need for employment and/or housing. They are persons seeking a second chance.

Projects which reuse vacant lands and buildings & create healthy green products while assisting persons in need of another chance are key. The Vineyards of Chateau Hough, established through a Reimaging Clevland Grant in 2010 followed by the opening of the Winery at Chateau Hough in 2019, both assist to further efforts to work with the service population.
