Project FRESH Start

We help eligible homeless families in Baltimore City find stable, affordable housing so that with employment and a stable family life, they can become self-sufficient and independent.

During the time a family is in our program, we provide:

  • Housing
  • Counseling
  • Referrals to remedial education
  • Life and job skills training
  • Parenting workshops
  • Financial literacy workshops
  • Case management
  • Referrals to community services

Because of the array of services we offer, the parents in our families are able to secure employment and the children make successful progress in the Baltimore City Schools. We help build families that will succeed across the generations.

To qualify to become part of Project FRESH Start, the family must be homeless and have children enrolled in the Baltimore City public school system. All referrals for Community Housing programs come through Coordinated Access within Baltimore City. When housing opportunities come available staff will inform the Baltimore City Coordinated Access team who will alert referring organizations. Once potential participants are screened for eligibility and required documentation is collected, referrals are made to the programs. Potential participants are screened by program staff and once a match is determined, housing placement occurs.
