MCCH operates nine distinct permanent supportive housing (PSH) programs to connect people who have experienced homelessness to stable, permanent housing along with the services they need to maintain their housing.
All PSH clients pay 30% of their income towards rent - regardless of the source or amount of their income - and receive ongoing support from our social workers to address the issues that led to their homlessness and connect them to resources they need to remain stably housed.
Each of the following PSH programs serves a distinct population in order to meet their needs with appropriate resources:
Cordell Place – Serves 32 single men and women in a renovated office building downtown Bethesda.
Creative Housing Initiative Program (CHIP) – Serves 16 formerly homeless individuals in an apartment complex in Germantown, including those who have been frequent users of the emergency medical and corrections systems.
- Home First – Serves 30 chronically homeless single adults in various locations in partnership with Cornerstone Montgomery.
- Hope Housing – Serves 40 single adults and 2 families with disabilities in partnership with Stepping Stones Shelter
- Keys First – Serves 28 single adults who have experienced chronic homelessness in various locations throughout the county.
- Operation Homecoming – Serves 20 veterans with disabilities, including 15 single adults and 5 families, in various locations throughout the county.
- Seneca Heights Apartments – Serves 40 single adults and 17 families with more than 30 children at a renovated Econo Lodge in Gaithersburg.
