The transition from supportive housing and other forms of homeless services to mainstream housing without embedded support services is a critical transition period for persons with histories of homelessness, criminal justice involvement, mental illness, substance abuse, and other prior barriers to housing stability.


Under a grant from the NJ Department of Community affairs, Dr. Tiderington (PI), Dr. Zippay (co-PI), and several  collaborators developed a curriculum that provides supervisors and frontline case managers with the skills needed to assist formerly homeless supportive housing residents with the transition from supportive housing to housing without embedded case management support. 

Informed by the transtheoretical model of the Stages of Change and the evidence-based practices of Critical Time Intervention and Motivational Interviewing, this curriculum includes transitional skills training on:

·  Resolving barriers to mainstream tenancy,

·  Housing navigation,

·  Enhancing tenancy skills,

·  Financial capabilities,

·  Linking to formal and informal supports.


·  Available for immediate use

·  Appropriate for supervisors and frontline case managers

·  Improved transitional skills self-efficacy
