Our Mission is to Help Solve Homelessness in Howard County, Maryland…
By providing permanent housing for homeless residents
By serving as a model and resource for others
HEHHC now has its SECOND house and has placed its fourth family!
There are over 400 homeless households, including more than 600 children, in Howard County. Community agencies and organizations provide respite, emergency and transitional housing to some, but that housing is of limited duration. Under the county’s Coordinated System of Homeless Services, permanent houses are available, but for the lowest income families there is still nowhere to go.
Our method is to buy properties to house those families. We take advantage of the proven Housing First Model, attacking homelessness by providing permanent housing. After establishing people in homes, we offer partnership with them as they get back on their feet. Working within the framework of the Coordinated System of Homeless Services, we utilize local resources to identify and support residents in need. In addition, we offer ourselves as a model and resource for other organizations that want to do similar work.
We invite you to be part of this response. Through your contributions of money, effort, talents and prayer, we can move together from managing homelessness in Howard County to beginning to solve it.
