They are expected to cook for themselves and do their own laundry (on-site).

Since the facility specializes in social reintegration for clients coming out of the criminal justice system, residents are often required to attend or continue to attend outpatient or Intensive Outpatient Programs () during their stay. Residents must also attend regular meetings as well as life skills, job training and GED preparation classes.

Unlike some sober living facilities, the shorter-term program focuses on the transitional process of settling into independent living while continuing to attend treatment, rather than requiring clients to get a job or go back to school. While it is a niche option for Allegheny County residents only, Lafayette Square still remains a strong option for transitional living for those who qualify.
