Case managers deliver one-on-one counseling and programming to build life skills, cultivate job readiness and improve financial literacy.
Rapid Re-Housing Programs
Rapid re-housing specialists ensure that guests are able to live independently before finding them permanent, secure housing. In the last year, over 150 individuals were housed through the Rapid Re-Housing Program.
Aftercare Coordinators act as a resource navigator and community advocate for guests as they exit the shelter by working with the Rapid Re-Housing Program, CAN's Community Outreach Program, along with community partners, to ensure that shelter guests receive all inclusive community-based supportive services to help move them toward self-sufficiency.
The Samaritan Housing Initiative Program is a federally (HUD) funded housing project. To support HUD's goal of improving housing accessibility for persons with disabilities, the project houses chronically homeless men and women in Baltimore County who have been diagnosed with a disabling condition.
