Supportive Housing Program (SHP)

SHP assists youth in locating and obtaining an apartment in their community. VYH provides funds for security deposits, rent, start-up furnishings, transportation and limited food assistance. Participants are responsible for paying monthly rent based on income. Youth receive individual and group counseling focused on developing and implementing an individual plan for independence.



Anyone experiencing a housing crisis or homelessness in the Lehigh Valley may contact Coordinated Entry for a single, streamlined assessment and referral process for housing and related services from a designated coordinated Entry Specialist.


Call: 211

Coordinated Entry Hours: Monday – Friday from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

NOTE:  2-1-1 is a 24 hour service, but Coordinated Entry is only available as specified above.  After hours, a live operator will still field the call and provide a list of referral, but the staff is not trained to conduct the VI-SPDAT assessment.
