Transitional and Bridge Housing
Our Transitional Housing Program for Adult Men and Women is able to provide shelter to 16 individuals; 12 men and 4 women. Of the 16 bed spaces, 14 are reserved for individuals in our transitional housing program and 2 for emergency shelter.
The transitional housing program for adult men and women allows homeless individuals to reside in a safe and stable environment that meets their daily needs for food and shelter while allowing them the opportunity to receive supportive services and to rebuild their lives. Individuals are allowed to remain in the program for a maximum period of 18 months. Our staff works directly with individuals to formulate an appropriate case plan. Our staff and volunteers offer career counseling programs, substance abuse recovery programs, mental health counseling, life skills training, individual planning, and assistance obtaining permanent housing. Where appropriate, staff refers clients to mental health agencies, outpatient/inpatient substance abuse recovery programs, domestic violence classes, educational/vocational programs, and individual therapy and counseling. After initiation of the case plan, staff and volunteers work with clients during their time in transitional housing to set long term goals, to seek and maintain employment, encourages them to save their earnings in preparation of finding permanent housing and assistance in securing permanent housing. Staff assists clients in finding furniture and appliances for the client’s permanent housing.

In February 2016, DCMH opened New Pathways, a transitional/bridge housing program for chronically homeless individuals. It is a partnership between Yolo County Health and Human Services, the city of Davis, Yolo Community Care Continuum, and Yolo County Housing. The program provides housing for 4 individuals. The programs goal is to provide intensive services to the most vulnerable individuals experiencing chronic homelessness in Davis. The goals are to improve their physical and behavioral health, increase income, reduce involvement with the justice and healthcare systems, and to find permanent housing for them. The program is based on a harm reduction model providing intensive wrap around services to all individuals in the program, allows residents to have pets, and is open to the residents all day and night.For more information about Davis Community Meals and Housing support programs, email our Resource Coordinator or call 530-753-9204.
