transitional housing for young mothers ages 18-24 and their children who are experiencing homelessness. The Transformation Center boasts 40 fully-furnished, private apartments that can house up to 40 moms and 50 children at a time—which makes New Moms the largest provider of housing for young moms in Chicago.
New Moms takes a “housing first” approach, which affirms that providing a safe, secure, and trustworthy environment to call home is the foundation of youth development and family well-being.

Families at the TC can choose to engage with any, all, or none of New Moms’ resources. Together with their Family Coach, the family may choose to set and track their goals, attend prenatal and/or parenting support workshops, life skills group, job training and job placement support, and links to additional community resources. With the stability of safe and stable housing, the partnership of their coach, and a positive peer network of other moms in the building, young families can focus on their goals for individual and family health and well-being.
