Ann & Emmett Skinner Transitional Living Program

The Transitional Living Program serves single-parent families who have successfully transitioned out of the Adult Rehabilitation Program.

The Ann and Emmett Skinner Transitional Living Program is comprised of a four-unit duplex facility that serves single-parent families who have successfully transitioned out of The Salvation Army's Adult Rehabilitation Program located in Chico, California. 

A Mother's New Beginning

"I spent 7 months building a personal relationship with God and learned to be free from the guilt and shame of my past. I moved into the Transitional Living Program in December and for the first time I am giving myself the chance to be the mother my children needs." - Vanessa, TLP resident

The TLP provides families  with continued case management, weekly counseling, and 12-step programming. Our partnerships with outside agencies, county services, and Salvation Army ministry programs allow us to prepare the families for a successful transition back into the local community.

The TLP duplexes were mostly constructed in 2014 during a nine-day construction project by the students from California State University, Chico's College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Construction Management (ECC).    

The homes include environmentally friendly features like high-efficiency heating and air conditioning equipment, instant water heaters, drought tolerant landscaping, LED lighting, high-efficiency appliances, and solar electricity.

This project was made possible by substantial contributions from Ann and Emmett Skinner and other local donors.  According to Mr. Skinner, "Chico needs something like this really badly.  This project shows how the city, Salvation Army and University can come and all work together."
