People’s City Mission Transitional Housing Program Gives Men a Second Chance
With many facing tough economic times, People’s City Mission (pcmlincoln.org/Curtis-center) has adapted to the most urgent needs in our community, including reinforcing their transitional housing program to help prevent homelessness among men who deserve a second chance. The Curtis Center offers supportive, transitional housing for 60 men who need help getting back on their feet and are looking to improve their lives. Guests, including some on probation and post-incarceration, go through a two-year transitional program and build a positive path forward. It can be difficult to find rental housing after leaving prison, so PCM allows men to stay at the Curtis Center after completing their program. During this time, the men pay their own rent while they rebuild their credit and rental history and continue participating in classes and casework.
People’s City Mission was started in 1907 by local churches, offering food and shelter for transient and impoverished men, women, and children. In 1987, PCM moved to their current location and now house 350 men, women, and children nightly in their emergency shelters and the Curtis Center transitional housing program. If you know someone that might be a good fit for PCM’s Curtis Center program, contact Edie McNeese at firstname.lastname@example.org / (402) 475-1303.
