Single Resident Occupancy Program (SRO)

Workshops Pg, Mujeras LatinasThe Single Residency Occupancy (SRO) program in Haverhill is a long-standing, permanent housing option for single women who have become homeless as a result of domestic, sexual violence, mental health issues, or substance abuse, and who do not have children living with them.

Our housing philosophy is all about safety and self-empowerment.  In our model, we focus on the core competency of Economic Empowerment so that residents have a chance to build up their lives further whether they stay at The Residence or eventually move on to private housing.

The program itself consists of 10-private bedrooms with residents having access to a shared kitchen and living room as well as multi-floor bathroom facilities.  Women living in this residence program are eligible to receive vocational training and counseling as well as guidance on available community resources based upon their individual needs.
