Services

Emergency Housing

Overnight Placement Facilities

GTV Shift Program Inc. developed the Dora’s House and Roberta’s House facilities for the purpose of primarily serving hard to place single female individuals 18 years of age and over who are without permanent housing. These individuals will be given overnight placements. They will also be able to receive crisis intervention, case management and after care services to assist them with securing and maintaining permanent housing.

Transitional Housing

Supportive Housing Facility

GTV Shift Program developed Ada's House, a Supportive Housing Facility that provides long term, transitional housing and life skills training to young women between the ages of 16-25 with children or who are pregnant. It assists these families with making the SHIFT from dependent to independent self-sufficient lifestyles. Additionally it will assist these young women with available onsite child care services. 


As one of the only facilities of this nature in Suffolk County to offer these services, this 20 unit facility provides clients with a nine-step program and individualized service plans. These individualized service plans will teach them necessary parenting skills and life skills, and provide supportive services inclusive of crisis intervention and prevention. This collaborative approach to empowerment will be the keystone to developing self-sufficiency in the clients. These steps include personal development, vocational training, substance abuse prevention, pregnancy prevention, interpersonal skills building, community involvement, leisure family activities, independent living skills and parenting skills.
