Greene County Housing Program is one of Greene County’s only housing and transition program created for families who are experiencing homelessness. 


The Greene County Housing Program serves approximately 266 individuals per year who experience homelessness.  The cost of a shelter per night in Greene County is $18.25.  This program helps to offset that cost.  In addition, 92% of the individuals who exit the program will then go on to obtain stable housing, thus becoming contributors to our community.  Help us to continue changing the lives of children and families in Greene County!
