Open Hearth’s Rental Assistance Program

Open Hearth’s Goal Achievement Program (GAP) is their homelessness prevention program that provides short-term, decreasing level rent payment assistance to those who are at risk of becoming homeless due to an unforeseen, short-term financial crisis. 

Thanks to the Phoenixville Community Health Foundation, they have an additional pool of funds to help those impacted by COVID-19 to keep them stably housed during this health and economic crisis.
