NOTE: Individuals seeking housing must apply through Allegheny Link only. Familylinks cannot take direct applications for housing.
One way Familylinks helps those in recovery from addiction is through temporary housing help. If you’re 18 or older, in recovery and experiencing homelessness, Penn Free Bridge Housing can provide secure, subsidized housing for up to a year, plus assistance with finding employment and other resources. Recovery is a journey, and it helps to have a little push along the way. Familylinks is here to help with more than just treatment options.
