Decade to Doorways

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. It does so while providing vital wrap-around services plus limited subsidies to help families maintain and sustain living in their own home.  The mission of Home of the Sparrow directly aligns with this plan. Home of the Sparrow has already made great strides to advance our programs so that we may help additional women and children through these initiatives.

Off-Site Hours at Key Partner Locations

Our program team holds regular off-site office hours at key partner locations. With the help of our partners Kennett Area Community Services, Octorara YMCA, ORION Communities, and The Parkesburg Point Youth Center, we are making it possible for women from all corners of Chester County to access our services.

In addition to our headquarters in Exton, we have satellite locations in Phoenixville, Parkesburg and Atglen. There, women can meet with our experienced program coordinators. They can get information about our supportive housing services and access referrals to community resources and support systems.
