Services to End and Prevent Homelessness

The programs of Services to End and Prevent Homelessness (SEPH) have a common vision: access by all people to safe, affordable housing, and opportunities to improve quality of life. The mission of SEPH is to make homelessness a rare, brief, and non-recurring event by operating from a Housing First philosophy.

SEPH provides a full continuum of services including housing stabilization, homeless diversion, and permanent housing; and employs evidence-based and promising practices. SEPH programs collaborate with public and private partners through the Interagency Commission on Homelessness.

Special needs populations include veterans; both individuals and families; persons with behavioral health challenges; individuals with developmental disabilities; transitioning youth; and seniors with disabilities experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

The Interagency Commission on Homelessness (ICH) was established by the County to act on behalf of residents experiencing homelessness and to provide advice, counsel, and recommendations to the County Executive and County Council. The Commission's responsibilities involve matters influencing provisions of services, County government policies and procedures, development and implementation of State and Federal laws, and other issues affecting the lives, rights, and welfare of people experiencing homelessness in Montgomery County.

The Continuum of Care (CoC) is Montgomery County's local homeless program planning network. It is a public-private partnership that includes County and other government agencies, non-profit service providers, landlords and others who have a role in the community's housing market. The purpose of the CoC is to encourage and support local organizations in coordinating efforts to address housing and homeless issues and reduce homelessness.

The ICH will serve as the governing board of the Montgomery County CoC and will meet quarterly.
