Montgomery County is committed to making the experience of homelessness rare, brief and non- recurring through a range of strategies including:

  • homeless prevention,
  • street outreach,
  • temporary shelter,
  • rental assistance and
  • permanent housing with support services.

Through partnership with non-profit organizations, foundations, corporations, consumers, donors and the community, we work toward a common vision of "Housing for All=A Stronger Montgomery".

Our system works to connect people experiencing homelessness with housing as quickly as possible. As we work toward this goal, people experiencing homelessness may access a variety of programs located throughout the County to meet their basic needs such as:

  • emergency shelter
  • meals
  • laundry
  • showers
  • mail

The "system" provides approximately 500 beds for single adults and households with children. The Continuum of Care provides:

  • Emergency shelter space during winter months (November 1 - March 31).
  • Emergency shelter space for single adults at two emergency shelters (with additional space as needed).
  • Shelter and housing placements for families based on availability and prioritized for those households with the greatest need.

If you or someone you know is experiencing homelessness or at risk of eviction, please contact us.
