Mission Statement

To champion the improved quality of life for homeless families in Montgomery County.

Description

IHC currently serves 16 families in 11 scattered-site housing units that are owned by IHC as well as 5 apartments that IHC co-owns with a private developer. The recipients of this program are Montgomery County families who currently are or have been homeless or who are at risk of being homeless. The services provided are: 1) Rental of decent affordable housing at no more than 1/3 of the family's income, 2) Linking families to services and subsidies for which they are eligible (e.g. rent, child care and health care subsidies), 3) Assisting families in finding and pursuing educational opportunities that will enhance job potential (completing GED, pursuing vocational/technical skills or certificates, pursing college course work, etc.), 4) Linking families to physical and mental health care providers and to recovery support systems, if needed, 5) Budget counseling with the goal of clearing their credit history. In the past 15 years IHC has helped 31 families make significant and sustained progress.
