The Journey of One Couple

You are here

Paul and Alice along with a longtime friend Carol, take a moment after signing their apartment lease to enjoy the weather.

In November 2015 Paul and Alice were found sleeping in their car at the Wal-Mart parking lot in Willow Grove and confirmed homeless by the Street Outreach Team. The North Penn Area Housing Resource Center began working with the couple to develop a housing plan. Paul and Alice were in and out of motels and eventually entered shelter.  Numerous staff and partner organizations assisted this couple with their goal of housing.  The North Penn Area Housing Locator was able to help secure housing for them through a landlord that has been supportive of the Your Way Home program. On Monday, April 11, 2016 they signed a lease agreement for a one bedroom apartment in Lansdale.
