Help the Homeless in Montgomery County Maryland
The Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless is a leading organization dedicated to preventing and ending homelessness, by providing a range of programs and housing options.
Our housing and shelter programs:
Cordell Place - MCCH’s newest program provides permanent housing to 32 single men and women in downtown Bethesda, in a facility featuring Personal Living Quarters, sheared kitchens, a community room, and other amenities. All tenants receive on-site case management as well as the opportunity to engage in a range of community events and activities.
Creative Housing Initiative Pilot Project (CHIPP) – A pilot program to demonstrate the effectiveness of permanent supportive housing in MontgomeryCounty. Sixteen homeless individuals who have been frequent users of the emergency medical and corrections systems have been provided permanent housing and supportive services. A cost-benefit analysis is being conducted to analyze the cost savings of permanently housing this population.

In addition to basic amenities such as showers, bunks and dining facilities, case management and other supportive services are provided.

MCCH, as well as Interfaith Works and Stepping Stones Shelter, provide the direct services to 40 individuals and 2 families, while MCCH coordinates and oversees the operations and finances.
- Partnership for Permanent Housing – A collaborative program with county government, the Housing Opportunities Commission, and private foundations. As the county’s pilot Housing First initiative, PPH combines the case management component of transitional housing programs with quicker access to permanent housing by providing subsidized permanent housing and supportive services to over 180 households.
- Safe Havens – A low-demand transitional housing program for 40 mentally ill, homeless adults. Safe Havens provides case management, counseling, life skills development, and on-site psychiatric services with the goal of helping clients transition to a healthy life with permanent housing.
