The Wheeler House Project is a transitional home and affordable Emergency shelter that is being built in the heart of Denton. The project is a collaboration between Giving HOPE, Inc. which manages the transitional housing program, Health Services of North Texas who runs the medical clinic, and Serve Denton who provides support, additional resources, and facilities maintenance.
Wheeler House provides temporary housing for single mothers and children experiencing homelessness. Space is available for up to four families at a time. While at Wheeler the participants receive one-on-one intensive case management to include but not limited to: budget counseling, life skills training, and housing search assistance. Program participants also meet monthly with Texas Woman’s University Occupational Therapy students and a counselor from Youth & Family Therapy. In a group led by a Youth & Family Therapy Counselor, the mothers cover topics ranging from learning and understanding different parenting styles to the importance of self-care. The children work with Occupational Therapy students creating crafts and playing games that increase fine motor skills, agility, or work to improve their had to eye coordination in a fun setting.
Referrals are provided to various partner agencies that help lay a path that leads to a successful transition into independent housing and self-sufficiency.
