In partnership with the Montgomery County Courts, Montgomery Bar Association, Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Montgomery Bar Foundation, the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities and the Montgomery County Office of Housing & Community Development, Your Way Home has established the Eviction Prevention Intervention Coalition (EPIC) to provide limited financial assistance and legal representation to prevent evictions, as well as referrals to long-term financial and social supports needed to prevent future housing instability. Learn how EPIC was informed by a national best practice research study, funded by braiding public-private dollars, and implemented in the Montgomery County Courts.
