Transitional Housing for Families

“Oftentimes a mother is faced with the difficult decision: to put food on the table or to pay the rent."

This is an impossible and heartbreaking position for any woman to be in. 
-Linda Uveges, CEO of The City Mission

Safe, affordable housing

Mothers who graduate from Laura’s Home will now have the opportunity to remain on campus and continue to receive support for themselves and their children with safe, affordable housing. Thanks to a $1.5 million gift from Dr. Fred and Jackie Rothstein, Rothstein Village Transitional Housing for Families will house 16 families from Laura’s Home.

Set to break ground in November, Rothstein Village Transitional Housing for Families is expected to be completed as early as October 2024.

Building a more stable life

The total cost of the project is expected to be $4.1 million, with an annual operating budget of $250,000. Each mother and child will continue to work with a Caseworker, and remain in this housing for 18-24 months, allowing her the gift of time as she works to build a better life for her children.

Helping those in need

“For many years, Fred and I have been supporting The City Mission because we believe in helping those in need. We’re so proud to partner with The City Mission to help build transitional housing apartments for families as they move toward a more stable life.”

Serving families, together

“We are truly grateful for this incredible gift from the Rothstein family. Thanks to their generosity, The City Mission can serve single mothers and their children for an even longer period of time. As they remain on campus, mothers can work to increase their annual income to afford independent housing. Our goal is to provide mothers with the resources they need to end the cycle of generational poverty for their families.”
