Your Way Home Montgomery County is a transformational partnership between government, philanthropy, nonprofits and community partners to solve – finally – the problem of homelessness in our community. For more information about our partnership, please visit any of the following pages:
In January 2014, Your Way Home Montgomery County was established as the county's unified and coordinated housing crisis response system for families and individuals experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of homelessness. Your Way Home embraces a "housing first" approach to ending homelessness by first helping people find or maintain permanent housing with stability and then connecting them with community, health, human and financial services to prevent future experiences of homelessness. Through coordinated entry and assessment, Your Way Home prioritizes housing and services based on vulnerability and need rather than on a first come, first serve basis. Through progressive engagement, consumers are given just as much services and support they need to succeed in order to preserve costly interventions like permanent supportive or subsidized housing for families and individuals with significant and lasting barriers to housing stability.
