If your family is facing homelessness, Family Promise of Southern Chester County can help. We currently are working with families who are in “doubled-up” situations- living with friends or families, but who do not have their own home or apartment. We provide services through a Case Manager to help you get back on your feet, connect you with other services, and help you take whatever steps you need to become safely and stably housed. We help families with children under the age of 18 and mothers who are expecting. Please call 610-444-0400 or visit our Contact page to learn about the many benefits of the program for you and your family.
If you need shelter tonight, please call the Chester County’s central intake at 211.
