The DORM opened in March 2011. This 9-bedroom facility provides transitional housing for young adult males aged 18-24.

Their primary population for the DORM is males that have recently aged out of foster care, were released from detention centers or are in a crisis situation.

In addition to a place to stay, the young men receive classes and sessions that focus on employment readiness, life skills, and group therapy in order to educate them on how to support themselves in becoming self-sufficient.

The youth will be afforded up to twenty-four months to transition to a more permanent residence, i.e., apartment, home, college, military, etc.

The DORM houses up to eight residents at a time supervised by one live-in staff member.
