General Information:

The mission of Baltimore Outreach Services (BOS) is to provide comprehensive services and programs to homeless women and their children. Services include emergency shelter, supportive housing, educational programming, health and mental health services, job training and employment counseling.

 

Supportive Housing

An interim step between emergency shelter and market housing

Most emergency shelters in the Baltimore area have a 90-day length of stay, but the residents at Baltimore Outreach Services stay in our emergency shelter until housing is available, as long as they are working toward their goals of housing and self-sufficiency. Our residents do not have enough income to participate in traditional market housing.

 

Once a resident has obtained employment and is ready to leave the shelter, the lack of available supportive housing becomes evident. Supportive housing is a two-year, intensive counseling and mentoring program that encourages growth to achieve goals of financial stability, mental health treatment and substance abuse recovery.

 

All residents must be employed to enter our supportive housing program. During their stay in supportive housing, residents resolve outstanding bills and reconcile poor credit issues while improving their job skills.

 

We currently operate 10 units of supportive housing for families leaving the Baltimore Outreach Services emergency shelter. We completely furnish our homes with furniture, linens and kitchen goods.
