Frequently Asked Questions

What Is transitional housing?

Unlike a halfway house, a transitional home provides housing in a structured environment which in the case of OHOH includes work skills training, financial management training, substance abuse counseling where needed and spiritual development.

Are these violent or sexual offenders?

Because we are non- government funded we accept only those offenders that go through our strict selection process. No currently violent offenders or sex offenders will be accepted.

Will these men be allowed to come and go as they please?

No. For the first 90 days they will not be allowed out except to attend church services under supervision. After the first 90 days they will be given a little more independence based upon approval of our onsite house manager.
