The Permanent Supportive Housing Program began in June 2006 with it’s first four residents.  Criteria for the program includes: the resident must meet the homelessness definition as established by United Way of Lancaster County’s State Housing and Homelessness Impact Report. A resident must also have a disability. Residents have a private bedroom/sitting area, and shared common area such as kitchen, showers/bathrooms, laundry, and community room. Residents may live here indefinitely. They will go through a regimented daily routine focusing on basic life and interpersonal skills necessary for independent living. Residents will attend educational classes with practical application sessions ranging from cooking a meal to cleaning a toilet.
