Our Permanent Housing Program supports 27 of these families and their housing is partially subsidized by HUD. Referrals for this program come from a coordinated intake process facilitated by Allegheny Link (1-866-730-2368). Families are referred to us who are street or chronically homeless and the head of household has a disability.
Our Empowerment Housing Program serves up to 5 families and is privately funded. This is a transitional housing program for families that do not meet HUD homelessness definitions and/or qualify for HUD funded housing. We receive direct referrals from allied professionals and the community to assist these families. Parent(s)/guardian(s) must be working and/or attending school, may or may not have a disability, and may have an undocumented status. Acceptance into this program is subject to an intake interview. Capacity fluctuates according to funding availability.
