Homeless & Previously Incarcerated Transformation Shelter Model
The Enterprise RESTART homeless transformation model is currently operated at HOST House (Help Others Sleep Tonight), a men's program in Patterson, CA and very soon, at NAOMI's HOUSE for homeless women, also in Patterson.
This 6- to 8-month residential program for homeless and previously incarcerated individuals positively impacts and transforms their lives in such a way that upon graduation from the program they obtain employment, enroll in school or specialized training or join the military.
