Become a resident

The Pillar House experience is designed for young adults who have recently graduated from college and are relocating to the Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, area for work or continuing education. Each Pillar House location includes at least one furnished bedroom and access to a bathroom, kitchen, and laundry facilities for an affordable price. 

Pillar House is a one-year commitment from August through July, and residents may stay at Pillar House no longer than 12 months. Throughout the year, residents will meet with their host mentor every other week for one-on-one mentoring sessions. At least once a month, residents and their hosts will also participate in house-wide events like service projects or fun outings to develop community with one another.

All prospective residents must submit an online application. Following the online application will be a phone or in-person interview with the host mentor. To gauge community dynamics, applicants will also be asked to interview with other prospective residents.
