Through individual counseling, women are provided the opportunity to work on specific issues or goals. They learn to develop survival skills and access community resources such as job training, health care, welfare, and child care.
During the intake phase, a woman participates in sessions with a Women In Transition Counselor to determine the extent of her needs, the type of service best suited to meet her needs, and the help she needs to create a personal goal plan of action.
