Some of the things that separate (RTI) from other homelessness organizations-
(RTI) offers a more complete program to help the homeless not just put them up for the night and then send them back out in the morning.
(RTI) offers life skills training, job skills training , job placement assistance.
Companion pets are welcome
(RTI) doesn’t separate members of the family (Many shelters do not allow for a family to stay together in shelters and if you are a single parent with a child or children of the opposite sex you are separated from your child/children at night time) which for children this can be terrifying and causes many single parents and families not to go to shelters.
