We realize that there are ways to successfully approach homelessness. While traditional shelters may have graduation success rates of 5%-9%, transformative communities around the country have graduation success rates of 51%-84% of residents graduating from their programs.
Transformative systems offer homeless individuals the option and ability to succeed by becoming self-sufficient, thereby dramatically reducing the homeless population within any given community. As such, we recognize the importance of customizing these systems to each unique community.
The Seven Guiding Principles of Transformation, combined with the Core Tenets of a Transformative System, influence how we develop plans to establish transformational communities, such as in: designing buildings, repurposing existing facilities, hiring people, activating volunteers, engaging the homeless community and working with government, business, faith-based and non-profit organizations.
