Housing in Montgomery County is no isolated feature, it touches many parts of our ecosystem. Below is a list of resources within Montgomery County. Our Board has some of the most robust funding opportunities thanks to the Human Services Levy and successful grant writing by our staff.

Recovery Housing
Recovery housing for people coming out of addiction or dependency treatment who would like additional support. Programmatic, meaning that there are supportive services such as life skills development and peer run groups offered to help people learn the tools to live a healthy sober life. For many people, returning to the life they had before treatment can put them in difficult and risky situations that can cause them to relapse. Recovery Housing understands the intersectionality of housing and employment. While in recovery housing, case managers meet routinely with clients to help support viable employment through internships, continuing education, and apprenticeships. We partner with organizations such as Goodwill Easter Seals to use their connections, skills, and expertise to best connect people with the jobs they would enjoy doing.
