SHA opened in the summer of 2004 after several years of advocacy to extend the zoning laws permitting Personal Living Quarters in Montgomery County. After the laws were extended representatives from MCCH, Housing Opportunities Commission, Montgomery County Department of Housing and Community Affairs, and Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services partnered together to renovate a former Econolodge in Gaithersburg. The development and operation of Seneca Heights Apartment is an important achievement in the Coalition’s local plan to end homelessness.
