Host Home


Serves youth 16-21 who are homeless or unstably housed

  • Not required to use Coordinated Entry – we have significant flexibility to recruit/prioritize
  • Nationally this has been an effective intervention for pregnant/parenting youth as well as other “hard to serve” youth

Families volunteer to “host” youth in their home for up to two years. WCA provides a stipend to cover expense and case management supports to both youth and host family

  • Supports focus on life, social, emotional skills and transition into the workforce.
  • Housing First as best practice 

Program Funding

Funded through an annual grant from Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency
