ONE KINGDOM HEART HOUSE (O.K.H.H.)
TRANSITION HOUSE FOR WOMEN & THEIR CHILDREN
EXPECTED OPENING 04/2020
O.K.H.H. has three distinct competitive edges that will be leveraged to help make it a successful service provider with sufficient financial resources:
• Same-gender services: This is quite valuable because homeless women are far more vulnerable than homeless men. The same-gender environment allows women to deal with self-esteem issues which are very typical in abusive and chemical dependent situations. A same-gender setting also allows a sisterhood to develop, allowing the women to bond and develop meaningful, supportive relationships together. Lastly, it minimizes the risk of sexual relations between residents.
• Length of stay: O.K.H.H. has the ability to offer clients the option of staying up to two years at the facility. The ability to stay a longer time significantly increases the chance of rehabilitation/skill development/self-sufficiency.
• 21st Century Job Readiness & Comprehensive Service-Learning Programming: With the support of strong community service partnerships, O.K.H.H.’s “Seven-to-Seven (727 L.T.D.)” Leadership Training & Development program was developed to build and empower self-sufficient, confident women and children by applying the 7 “laws of learning” to produce the 7 principles FOR LIFE.
This seven-step program, when fully engaged by the residents (which generally occurs because of the program being on-site and for the duration of the stay of the clients) encompasses 21st Century arts-infused education and service-learning skills, with an unequivocal job embeddedness aim. O.K.H.H. will provide a comprehensive method of learning which is both rigorous and relevant for healthy adult and youth development.
