The mission of Keystone Opportunity Center is to help community members in need by offering a comprehensive array of social services that educate, encourage and empower them to become self-sufficient.
Housing the Homeless in Upper Bucks and Montgomery counties – Keystone Opportunity Center provides a continuum of support from Homelessness Prevention, Rental Assistance, and Eviction Diversion, to Emergency Shelter, Rapid Rehousing, and Permanent Supportive Housing. We provide case management across the board to help our families successfully get back on their feet and maintain safe housing. We also own/operate over two dozen affordable housing units. One important factor in homelessness in the US is a lack of affordable housing, so we are doing our part to increase the number of safe, affordable homes.
Feeding the Hungry – Keystone Opportunity Center operates a food pantry serving nearly 1,000 neighbors across the Souderton Area School District who are dealing with food insecurity. Pantry users qualify for assistance based on their income, and are allowed to visit the pantry once per month to receive a 3-day emergency supply, along with donated items from local farms, grocers or individuals.
Educating Adults – Keystone Opportunity Center provides life-changing education in several locations within Montgomery and Bucks counties, with the largest classes held in Souderton and Lansdale. Classes include English as a Second Language, High School Equivalency, Citizenship, Adult Basic Education, English for College and Career, individual tutoring, and more. We know that literacy, the completion of schooling, and citizenship are essentials for leading a self-sufficient life.
