Christopher Place Employment Academy
Christopher Place Employment Academy is an intensive residential employment program that provides education and training, as well as recovery support to formerly homeless men of the Baltimore area. During the first three months of their stay, the men formally commit to a minimum of six months in residency to acquire the necessary skills and financial standing to be successful in the community. The commitment is designed to support these men in their transition from a lifestyle of homelessness and substance abuse or dependency to a positive routine in training towards future employment and stable living.
