Homeless Services

About 4,000 people experience homelessness on a given night in the Baltimore region.

People experience homelessness for a variety of reasons. Periodic homelessness is often caused by loss of employment, sudden illness, domestic violence, or other crises. Longer term homelessness can often result from untreated mental health challenges, disabilities, and addiction.

Our Homelessness and Supportive Housing Services employ cutting-edge, best practice solutions to minimize the incidence and duration of homelessness, with the ultimate goal of ending homelessness in our community. Our services include homelessness prevention and shelter diversion, comprehensive 24/7 shelters, day shelter, rapid rehousing, and permanent supportive housing.
