The Rental Counseling to Prevent Homelessness Program (RCPH) is a comprehensive, preventative, and proactive case management approach to ending homelessness in Lancaster County.
RCPH seeks to stop homelessness before it starts by targeting low-income families within the county at risk of losing their housing and by creating innovative solutions to help them maintain permanent housing, thereby avoiding homelessness as well as the expensive collateral damage homelessness causes to both families & the community.
