Montgomery County Ohio transitional housing and shelter.

A combination of charities and non-profit organizations in Dayton and Montgomery County provide housing to low income and homeless families. Each program will focus on people faced with certain hardships, whether it is a veteran that is homeless or a single parent trying to provide an affordable home or apartment for their child.

Any type of housing will be combined with other support services, such as job placement, free food, and clothing. This will be a requirement as the non-profits and the staff at the Montgomery County agencies want families to gain long term stability, and that can only be done by the individual receiving an education and/or a high paying job.
