RoofOver Transitional Housing
RoofOver is a transitional housing program for homeless and near-homeless families residing in Northampton County. There are five housing units available to families.
The goal of RoofOver Transitional Housing is to provide a safe and stable housing solution to these families while providing intensive case management to address their individual needs.
Under the rules of the program, families may stay for up to a year while they deal with the issues that led to their homelessness, stabilize their income and their family, and save money for their first month's rent and security deposit.
Supportive counseling, financial literacy training, life skills education and assistance finding permanent housing are available to the families. The Neighborhood Center continues case management services for each successful family for at least one year after their departure from RoofOver, which helps to ensure that each family remains stable and continues to work on their own self-sufficiency.
Because RoofOver is a very small program with a one year turnover time, there is often a waitlist. Interested families should call 610.253.4253 to find out when the waitlist will open to new families.
