Theresa (who graduates from the program next month) and Micheline (the case manager who wrote the note) are all smiles! Did You Know? There are about 100 transitional housing units for single women in the Seattle area, not enough for the estimated 600 single homeless women looking for safety each night. Most women in transitional housing work or go to school, but they work at low-paying or temporary jobs. Many come physically and emotionally exhausted from living on the streets and in emergency shelters.
