In these challenging times of COVID 19 Transition House is following all public health protocols and ensuring the use of masks and social distancing while on site. Currently, we are operating at a reduced capacity however work closely with Northumberland County to ensure housing based service access 24/7. We remain open for support and inter-agency referral for those looking for connections. Since the beginning of the pandemic we’ve not missed one opportunity for service and will remain operational for all county residents needing this assistance.
