The Village of Hope is a temporary housing program for homeless adults in Bucks County who have been
diagnosed with both a mental health and substance use disorder.
Our program is based in two houses, one which serves 8 males and one which serves 8 females. The residents of the houses have access to the services offered on the Penn Foundation campus. After the resident has completed stabilization treatment, work, education, and volunteering become priorities. Program staff will transport residents to places of employment within a certain radius.
We offer 24-hour, 7 days-a-week coverage. The average length of stay is 9 months although residents may stay up to 2 years.
Our staff assists residents with medication management, shopping, cooking skills, cleaning, etc. Residents are encouraged to learn ways to constructively use personal time such as hobbies or participating in exercise and sports activities. Computers, exercise equipment, and optional outings (i.e. baseball games, movies, hiking, fishing, etc.) are available to residents.
