Liberty House

The YWCA Northcentral PA's Liberty House Program, initiated in 2003, is a supportive housing solution for homeless individuals and families. It provides a safe and stable community-style living environment, which enables residents to rebuild relationships, regain independence, and empower themselves and each other to overcome their circumstances. The program's primary objective is to help break the cycle of homelessness and support residents as they achieve self-sufficiency.

Services provided to residents of Liberty House include:

  • Access to trained staff who assist residents in eliminating potential barriers to self-sufficiency by developing an individualized plan tailored to their specific needs.
  • A wide range of support services such as individual counseling, case management, effective parenting, money management/credit recovery, career development, healthy relationships, interpersonal skills, and more.
  • Case managers dedicated to the success of each resident, providing referrals and additional community resources to increase their chances of attaining self-sufficiency.
  • Access to emergency food and clothing, as needed.
  • A personalized shopping experience at The Boutique to help residents be job-ready as they begin exploring employment opportunities.
