2-1-1

Coordinated Entry

The way potential clients can join Liberty House has changed as of January 2018. To find out if you meet the criteria for our program, the person must call 2-1-1 or text their zip code to 898-211.

Just because someone calls 2-1-1 does not guarantee they will be entered into Liberty House.

From there a 2-1-1 employee will walk them through an application that will help place them in a housing program that is best for their specific situation. They will let the person know what programs are the best fit for them and what is available.

There will no longer be Liberty House applications online or in-person at the YWCA. All potential clients must go through 2-1-1.

The Connect to Home: Coordinated Entry System of Eastern PA covers a 33-county region which allows households experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless to get connected to resources that most fit the household’s needs. Since the system covers a large area, callers will have the opportunity to remain in Lycoming County for services or can be placed in one of the other counties.

In order to gain access to CES, please dial 2-1-1 to speak to a housing specialist, or text your zip code to 898-211.

A referral may be sent to the Liberty House if your needs meet our eligibility criteria. If a referral is sent to Liberty House, a case manager will contact you to begin the intake process if there are beds available.

The Liberty House is no longer accepting applications on site. Potential clients will be screened through 2-1-1. However, please be aware that simply calling 2-1-1 does not guarantee anyone a space in our program.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Amber Morningstar, program director, at (570) 322-4637 ext. 123 or amorningstar@ywcawilliamsport.org.

Blake and his family's rocky relationship led him to becoming homeless. Upon entering Liberty House, he was supported and encouraged for the first time since he came out as transgender. The staff members helped him through the process of legally changing his name, starting hormone treatment and acquiring a job.
