Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless Receives $500,000 Donation

Per MCHH: Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless, Inc. (MCCH) announces the largest ever donation supporting Montgomery County, MD’s success in ending homelessness for Veterans. TISTA Science & Technology Corporation donated $500,000 to MCCH to purchase the home for MCCH’s Safe Haven Program that helps Veterans transition from unsafe and unstable street life to permanent housing and re-engage with treatment services.

MCCH CEO, Susie Sinclair-Smith said, “We are overwhelmed with gratitude for TISTA’s generosity and shared commitment to end homelessness for Veterans in Montgomery County. Our partnership demonstrates how corporate and non-profit entities can work together to make a real and tangible impact on the epidemic of homelessness.

The partnership and donation will be celebrated on Thursday, January 12 at 1:30pm at TISTA’s Headquarters on 1201 Seven Locks Road, Rockville, MD 20854. CEO’s Joe Rhodes and Susie Sinclair-Smith will be joined by key leaders and elected officials who recognize the significant impact of collaboration between government, corporate and nonprofit entities.

MCCH is the largest homeless service provider exclusively focused on ending homelessness in Montgomery County, MD. Montgomery County was one of the first four communities in the nation to end Veteran homelessness by reaching functional zero for the population through the Zero 2016 Campaign that MCCH co-led and managed. MCCH helps Veterans through our VA Safe Havens emergency shelter program and our Operation Homecoming permanent supportive housing program.

Building upon the success of our original Safe Havens program, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), awarded MCCH funding in 2014 to provide Safe Havens emergency housing for veterans experiencing homelessness. MCCH serves over 55 men and women with severe mental illness each year in three Safe Havens residences located in Montgomery County.
