Transform Central


tc1Do not be conformed to this present world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may test and approve what is the will of God - what is good and well-pleasing and perfect (Romans 12:2).

Transform Central is a transitional home for men who were formerly incarcerated. The goal of Transform Central is to be a positive resource to the individual and the community by offering the individual residents an opportunity to be responsible citizens who will care for themselves and those they love.

Transform Central is a private-not-for-profit organization founded by Christians. We do not seek to change any resident but offer an environment where one may find love and support. We believe in the power of God to change us through the love of his son, Jesus, and the empowerment of his Holy Spirit.

Transform Central is not a treatment program.  We do not provide treatment services of any sort. We do support our residents in seeking out care that we do not provide or in continuing ongoing relationships with other care providers.  Though we do not provide treatment, Transform Central does offer community and healthy boundaries.  We expect our residents to commit to a long term relationship with us that typically lasts greater than three months.

Transform Central is housed in two free standing apartment buildings, each with a three bedroom and two bedroom unit.  One three bedroom unit is occupied by our resident manager and Outreach Minister for the Westgate Church, James Dean. James and his family live on site to provide support and structure.

The three remaining apartments are typically occupied by 7 to 9 residents. It is typical for our newest residents to remain in a room along with a roommate for a probationary period until both are acclimated to the program rules and schedule. Once the probationary period is at an end and space is available, residents have a private room for the remainder of their stay.

Application for admission can be made by downloading and completing the admission form, rules and expectation form, permission for criminal background check form, and any necessary release of information forms.  An application fee of $25 is assessed so that we may conduct a criminal background check to determine whether the applicant is appropriate for admission. The application process will not begin until the application fee is paid in full and the background check has been completed. Individuals with a history of any violent crime or those required to register as a sexual offender will not be admitted.

Notice:  Transform Central exists to offer a quality Christian transition into society regardless of race, religion, or ethnic origin.
