This organization has come a long way in such a short period of time! The ED attends every event possible to promote their services and inform the public and their specific clientele. These folks not only help the women veterans they serve but will help anyone who reaches out to them by referals and any others means necessary. I am proud to know and work with the team from Our Home Transitional. They provide much needed services and are quite learned in the realm of their targeted market. I look forward to future collaborations and the continued growth of OHT.

I am Exe. Director of Othila Inc. We shelter Veterans in Lapeer county, MI. We have spent time with members of Our Home Transitional, they are very hard working, dedicated to helping Female Veterans receive shelter and basic needs, but more importantly they assist these women with Changing their lives, to re-integrate , employment opportunity, residential stability, and a feeling of Self-worth, that is an unattainable option for them while they are homeless. This is a compassionate group of people, giving their all to help those who deserve it!

Transitional housing for Female Vets and those with children. A place where our female vets come to when they are facing challenges & are in need of a place to call Home. While here, they will be provided various types of assistance in efforts to transition to civilian life and self-sufficiency. Assistance to be provided by the City, County and Federal Governments will include: Job training/placement, mental & physical healthcare, educational training, and home placement assistance, to name a few. We also view this as an opportunity to revitalize & beautify the local Flint, MI area.We will all work together neighborhood orgs to keep areas clean, safe.
