Phoenixville Women’s Outreach provides safe housing and resources to break the cycle of dependence and poverty.
Homelessness in Chester County is very real, and the facts are staggering. Last year, more than 600 people were identified as homeless; one in three were women. In January 2015, our dream to open a home for these women to support them on their road to independence became a reality. Phoenixville Women’s Outreach opened “The House,” a transitional housing program for homeless and low-income single women in the greater Phoenixville area. In addition to safe housing, we provide our residents with support services and counseling to enhance skills, achieve self-sufficiency and move from crisis to independence and beyond.
