Sue's Home | Our Transitional Home
Located in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, Sue’s Home is a long term residential program for women and children. We accept women who have graduated from residential drug or alcohol treatment facilities or have been released from incarceration. We also accept women and children who find themselves homeless due to various economic situations. They are able to remain in Sue’s Home for 6 months and may, after successfully completing the program, receive assistance with relocation, partial rent and utilities for 3 months.
The Transitional Program is a comprehensive, faith-based program designed to assist women who are dealing with the effects of abuse, homelessness, addictions and/or past incarceration. Our desire is to provide a safe, nurturing environment for women and their families as they work to become self-sufficient, productive citizens in our communities and positive role models for their families.
We focus on providing the necessary educational tools and mentors needed to assist our clients and their families as they begin to make changes toward self-discipline, self-motivation, and good decision making pertaining to their individual and family needs.
While residing at Sue’s Home, clients attend Bible studies and receive assistance developing individualized physical, spiritual, emotional, and family goals. Staff and volunteers also assist women with transportation to medical appointments, job interviews, parole and probation appointments, school, etc.
The Life Skills Programs may include: Job training and placement, Basic computer literacy, Individualized instruction and tutoring to assist clients in obtaining their GED, Assistance with application and admission to the Gulf Coast Community College or other Vocational Programs, Parenting, Money management, Relapse prevention, Health and nutrition and Establishing healthy relationships and maintaining proper boundaries.
Staff and volunteers also provide support services for the children of our clients.
To apply for placement at Sue’s Home:
1. Request an application (online, by mail, or fax).
2. A client is placed on the waiting list ONLY after CCN receives and reviews a completed application.
3. Each client is interviewed prior to acceptance and given a list of documents and items needed for admission. A personal interview should not be interpreted as automatic acceptance into the program.
4. If accepted, a tentative date for admission will be set. All clients will be required to pass a drug and alcohol test.
5. No tobacco products are allowed in the program. This is due to the correlation between alcohol, drug, and tobacco addiction also, because we have children in the facility and always want to protect them.
6. The program fee for Sue’s Home is $85.00 per week. At CCN, we are well aware of the financial difficulties that accompany homelessness, so financial arrangements will be fully discussed during the application interview.
