Community Connections is an innovative approach to provide services to people who need them most, where they need them most—in their community. Community Connections offices are one-stop service centers in an initial four locations around Montgomery County—Willow Grove, Pottstown, Lansdale and Norristown. Each center offers a Navicate, a skilled human service professional who can provide residents with information and assistance in identifying services that will help them with needs such as health, housing, senior supports, child care, veterans affairs, supports for individuals with behavioral health or developmental disabilities or child, family or elder protective services. Residents will work with the same Navicate during their interaction with Community Connections, allowing the Navicate to serve as both a navigator of the system and an advocate for the individual throughout the process. Navicates will be located at the Community Connections offices.

Your Way Home Call Center

The Your Way Home Call Center is a centralized system for screening and intake for Montgomery County residents in need of housing. Instead of calling individual shelters, those experiencing homelessness or those at-risk of becoming homeless can call one toll-free number and be connected to appropriate services. After a brief screening, the operator may make an appointment for the caller at a Housing Resource Center to be connected with permanent housing and supportive services. Calls to the Center are answered by operators at NJ 2-1-1, which has access to up-to-date data about which providers have space available if the caller needs emergency shelter.
