Homeless Shelter / Transition Center
The Transition Center is operated by The Open Door of Delta, Inc. This shelter allows individuals to establish residency which is necessary to obtain jobs, food, medication and educational services. Our center is to serve as a stepping stone on the path to independent living. Residents are thoroughly screened through a 4 step process: (1) a pre-application, (2) in-take process, (3) background check and (4) committee approval. Once they enter the center, a strict set of rules must be followed and a daily plan is established to help them obtain their goals. The residents receive the identified skills from the Bridge Center located at The Open Door of Delta. To maintain their residency, they are monitored and must continue to show progress toward self-sufficiency. Once employment is obtained, residents may continue to stay with us while working on their individual finances needed to secure permanent housing. Our geographical boundaries are unlimited and all of the programs and services are available to all who qualify. Past residents have come from not only the Fulton, Lucas and Defiance area but also from Arizona, Texas, Indiana and Michigan.
