Transitional Housing for Homeless Youth

About JRO:

We operate two Christian transitional living homes in Collin County: Blake’s House (for Women) and His House (for Men). Our transitional living homes serve young adults aged 18-25 who have aged out of foster care, or who are homeless and without critical supports. We provide a warm living environment, equip residents with life skills, foster educational and career advancement, and build a network of support around them through mentors and individual coaching. We help them transition into adulthood, while imparting the love of Christ.  For more information, check out our website: https://www.jimrileyoutreach.org
