In 2012, The Chester County Department of Community Development instituted a 10-year strategic plan to prevent and ultimately end homelessness in Chester County.  The plan, Decade to Doorways, advocates moving families and individuals into independent housing as soon as possible while providing vital wrap-around services plus limited subsidies to help them maintain and sustain living in their own home.  The mission of Home of the Sparrow directly aligns with this plan and has already made great strides to advance our programs so that we may help additional women and children through these initiatives.
