Transitional Living Progam

The Transitional Living Program at The Salvation Army Santa Rosa Corps helps men who have graduated from an alcohol or drug rehabilitation program transition back to securing employment and to ultimately find permanent housing.


transitional-living-1The Transitional Living Program operates a four unit apartment building in Santa Rosa with a total of twelve beds.

The program provides a structured, safe, and supportive environment, where newly recovered addicts can change their lives by having a place to call “home” for up to 24 months. During this time, the men are working, saving, and learning the necessary skillsto succeed in life and transition into productive members of society.

Each participant has an Individual Recovery Plan that is created, monitored, and achieved through a coordinated effort involving the participant, staff, volunteers, and subject-matter experts in order to maximize the potential for success.
