Information About Anna’s House Services
There are many types of crises that can bring a woman to Anna’s House. Some have experienced domestic violence, loss of employment, or severe financial challenges. For others, chronic addiction or mental health issues have derailed their lives. Whatever the obstacle to a better life, our staff works one-on-one with each client to address her challenges. Our clients also give back to the community through volunteer projects that help to hone skills while providing a sense of belonging to something bigger than themselves.
Anna’s House provides supportive services where each woman begins to take charge of her life and recognizes her own capabilities and self-worth. Our goal, no matter which type of housing program a family is utilizing, is to provide personalized assistance and encouragement to each client as she moved toward self-sufficiency.
We provide a safe, quiet place to live so our families can sort out life’s difficulties and achieve independence with help from us such as:
- Career and life skills training
- Job placement assistance
- Case management
- Referrals to other community services in Harford County
Education, employment, and empowerment are the paths to self-sufficiency we share with our residents. Volunteers and a caring staff give of themselves daily to help our families on their journeys.
As much as we wish we could help everyone, potential clients must first be screened and referred to us by the Harford Community Action Agency Homeless Services located at 1010 Gateway Road, Edgewood, MD 21040. Please call HCAA’s Homeless Services at 443-345-3629.
