Network Self-Sufficiency Program
Goal: To provide temporarily housing to homeless families and single women in a caring environment and to support these homeless families in building a foundation for self-sufficiency.
Through our partnership with host and support congregations IHN – Main Line offers a cost effective way to provide shelter and support services to homeless families from our community. For a week at a time our host congregations convert classrooms into bedrooms and provide three families with a place to eat, sleep, and feel safe. Community volunteers provide home cooked meals, child care, and companionship for our families every evening and overnight from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.
Housing for Success
Goal: The principal goal of the program is to help participants obtain and remain in permanent housing while they increase their skills/education.
IHN – Main Line operates a Housing for Success Program for homeless families. It utilizes program funds to lease apartments in Montgomery County and it provides supportive services to the families living in these leased units. Participants are required to work and to attend an approved education program while in this program.
