Making the experience of homelessness in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania rare, brief, and non-recurring
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 they need 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 as 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.
