Transitional Housing

The Family Peace Project has been running a transitional housing program since 1996. We have 2 locations in Athens, TX. Each location is a home. Every family has their own room, and shares a common living, kitchen and dining area. We also have an outdoor play ground for children. We want our client's time living here to feel like their own home. While in our program, residents have access to many services:

  • Counseling

  • Support Group

  • Transportation

  • Advocacy

  • One-on-one Mentoring

  • Family Activities and outings

The ultimate goal is to provide an environment where a victim can transition into a survivor and exit our program into stable and affordable housing.​

Non-Residential Services

We recognize that victims come in all genders, race, age and economic status. We help all victims of domestic violence regardless of your circumstances. Even if you have stable housing we can help in a number of other ways:

  • Counseling

  • Support group

  • Advocacy

  • Accompaniments to court

  • Mentoring

  • Children's mentoring services

  • Relocation

  • Information and Referral
