Client graduation

This is a major milestone for the community of Milton not least so for the first client aided by Milton Transitional Housing over the last 2 years. The first client to move into MTH first ever transitional housing unit has now graduated from the program with her dignity and independence.

It is the true fruition of our vision for those of us who started this up and all those among the community who have volunteered, supported and sponsored. Recruiting clients in to available housing units is not the goal of the organisation. The goal is to help those assisted by the program to be able to sustain themselves with less direct support.

Congratulations and a toast all round. Raise your glasses!!!!!

All that said, Milton Transitional Housing is growing and looking to acquire 2 more housing units so build upon the three clients and units already within the community.
