Challenge

The City of Allentown has an increasing number of unsheltered residents living in the community. The Eastern PA COC's Lehigh Valley Regional Homeless Advisory Board reports that 678 individuals were experiencing homelessness in the Lehigh Valley in 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic has brought the numbers of those experiencing homelessness to rise exponentially.

Solution

Hope Village of Allentown will create a supportive and restorative shelter community for unsheltered residents. It will also provide safe and cost-effective sheltering options for those who are currently homeless with the option to expand this initial phase of the project to resemble Community First Village located in Austin Texas in the future. To provide rehabilitative program designed to support those experiencing homelessness and give them the the tools to continue to succeed.

Long-Term Impact

Residents will 1. Obtain gainful employment while in the program. 2. Maintain sobriety and control over their physical and mental wellbeing. 3. Complete necessary educational milestones which may have been hindered in the past. 4. Reconnect with their family and build healthy relationships with their fellow community members. 5. Move into permanent housing after completion of Hope Village of Allentown's programs. 6. Helping to lower costs incurred on the city, county, and state.
