I will not recommend this company if u looking for transitional housing because they don’t call and you will be waiting forever if u in the need of emergency they also do credit check. The company isn’t a place to depend on they will have u come in and do a interview after that they will make a decision if they want to help. I received a phone call and someone sold me a dream and then it turned out to be a lie which I don’t understand because they are affiliated with a church based out in Princeton. This place is very unprofessional because I didn’t receive any phone calls or nothing. I reached out to them numerous times and also I was in the need for emergency housing they denied me and gave the apartment to another family. Their website is a bunch of lies and false advertisement.
