Operated out of IW’s Progress Place location, the Interfaith Works Residences Program provides permanent, supportive housing to 21 men and women who have experienced chronic homelessness. The program helps clients maintain housing by providing private living quarters and 24-hour staff support in the same facility.

Our program offers a safe environment where residents can identify and overcome barriers to self-sufficiency and housing.

Each resident receives:

  • Life skills development

  • Tenancy support

  • Assistance with budgeting

  • Medication management

  • Referrals to other agencies including substance abuse counseling, mental health services, and dental services

*If you know of someone experiencing homelessness and in need of emergency shelter, please have them contact the Montgomery County Crisis Center, (240) 777-4000, which is open 24/7. More information about the Crisis Center is available on this county page.
