The Transition House of Bartow


Community Action & Human Services

About Us

The Transition House Inc. was started by Thomas Griffin in 1993 in St. Cloud, Florida as a halfway house providing substance abuse treatment and transitional housing for men. During the first years, we built our reputation for assisting homeless men with alcohol or drug abuse diagnoses, and prepared our clients for their return to society as productive and self-sustaining members of the community. 

The Transition House was selected by the Veterans Administration as a partner to begin assisting the growing number of homeless male veterans that were living on the streets of Central Florida. Recognized for the outstanding service provided to our clients, we continue to be a contracted VA program serving veterans on their road to recovery and integration back into society.
