With the increase in homelessness in our community, La Prensa Texas Community Liaison Ramon Chapa Jr and City Council Member Adriana Rocha Garcia scheduled a tour of the nonprofit organization, SSAMMinistriesTransitional Living and Learning Center. The TLLC provided safe and secure housing and support services to 78 families, including 166 children last year. The TLLC allows families to heal from the trauma of homelessness in a safe, welcoming environment while learning new job skills and continuing their education. Thank you President and CEO Nikisha Baker and her staff who led the tour and supported us with informative answers to our many questions. We learned about the Rapid Re-Housing program which is designed to reduce the amount of time a family experiences homelessness by quickly housing them into permanent, affordable homes. SAMMinistries provides financial assistance for up to 3 months along with 12 months of case management.
