There is a clear disconnect between the needs of low-income families and the availability of affordable housing in Montgomery County. To address this disconnect, Inter-Faith Housing Alliance has created a Supportive Housing Program at our new Ambler property, Hope Forest.
In 2015, First Presbyterian Church of Ambler, a long-term partner and supporter of Inter-Faith, raised funds specifically for us to expand our housing options. Their $300,000 gift allowed us to buy Hope Forest, a twin home for two families transitioning to self-sufficiency.
During the time families reside at Hope Forest, they continue to develop skills, resources, and relationships that will prevent future homelessness and foster economic independence.
