AHH offers a variety of transitional and supportive housing programs for individuals struggling to find housing, often as a result of a substance use disorder. AHH offers these programs both independently and through partnerships with the Salvation Army, area hotels, and other housing agencies. AHH also administers a re-entry program that helps recently incarcerated individuals find housing, employment, and social support services.
AHH owns five residential properties that provide limited transitional and supportive housing to young men who cannot find housing elsewhere. Residents in AHH transitional and supportive housing are eligible for AHH’s scholarship program, which provides financial support to rehabilitating individuals hoping to pursue new career opportunities (the application can be found here), as well as AHH’s car program, which provides vehicles to help residents get to and from work independently and on time.

- 85-90% of residents moved on to independent living, transitional housing, or to the next step in their recovery.
- Almost half of the unsuccessful discharges returned to the program. (most occurring in the first 30 days)
