MCCH operates nine permanent supportive housing (PSH) programs to connect people who have experienced homelessness to stable, permanent housing along with the services they need to ensure they never experience homelessness again. Each year, MCCH serves nearly 800 men, women, and children, including veterans, living in 400+ households throughout Montgomery County.
All PSH clients receive two critical types of support in order to remain in stable housing:
- Rental Assistance — PSH clients pay 30% of their income towards rent, regardless of the source or amount of their income. The balance of their rent is paid through vouchers or MCCH funding.
- Ongoing Supportive Services — Each PSH client receives ongoing support from a dedicated social worker to address the issues that led to their homelessness and connect them to resources they need to remain stably housed.
MCCH's PSH programs are incredibly effective. 98% of our PSH clients do not return to the experience of homelessness.
Each of our PSH programs serves a distinct population in order to meet their needs with appropriate resources. Learn more about each program below.
