Providing permanent, supportive housing and case management services for formerly homeless men and women.
Established in 1991, Jefferson House is the first personal living quarters in Rockville to provide permanent supportive housing to men experiencing homelessness. Residents have completed a residential treatment program before moving to Jefferson house where they will receive case management services to help tackle their personal barriers to self-sufficiency. As they progress, residents return to work, take classes, or volunteer. Jefferson is designated a historic home, located in downtown Rockville. It has been rented to Reach by Rockville United Methodist Church for almost 30 years and and houses up to six men.
The Rockland House opened in April 2014 thanks to the generosity of supporters in the community and funding from Montgomery County. It provides permanent supportive housing for women who have experienced homelessness. Supportive services and case management are provided by Reach's housing program director. Like Jefferson, residents are expected to work, take courses that provide job skills, or volunteer as they progress toward their return to self sufficiency. Rockland House can house up to five women and is located in the Twinbrook section of Rockville.
