Since 1995, CAA has operated the Roosevelt Townhouse Apartments in Springfield Township. The eight-unit complex serves as a temporary home (average stay of three years) for individuals and families who are transitioning from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
Residents participate in monthly training sessions in which they learn about financial literacy, parenting skills and how to develop a more positive outlook on life.
Residents also receive assistance through CAA’s many other programs, including:
- Referrals to obtain resources such as food and clothing through our Supportive Services program
- Receiving job readiness training, job referrals and placement, career counseling, job and retention coaching through our Workforce Development Program.
- Enrolling preschool age children in Head Start
- Helping any young adults in the family become involved in our Youth Services programs
