VA Palo Alto Health Care System


Transitional Residence Program (CWT/TR)

The TR Program is a 10-bed, community-based residential program. There are two separate residences located in Menlo Park. The TR program provides a structured therapeutic environment in which Veterans participate in vocational rehabilitation activities at least 30 hours per week.

While in the program, a case manager will monitor the participant’s living situation through regular contact, offering clinical insights and suggestions to improve the participant’s effectiveness and ability to meet independent living goals. Case managers will collaborate with Veterans on securing permanent housing and competitive employment, money management, time management, leisure activities, various social skills, personal hygiene, health and wellness.

Veterans enrolled in CBES, TWE or IPS may be referred to TR by their case managers. The maximum time Veterans can be in the TR Program is one year.


In addition to general CWT requirements, participants in the TR Program must:

  • Be capable of self-care and medication
  • Be engaged in treatment as clinically indicated
  • Be able to pay program fees
