The Family Stability Program
The Family Stability Program assists families to remain housed, support families so their children remain in their original schools, helps them obtaining affordable housing, and provides families with the tools they need to become self-sufficient.
The Family Stability Program is part of a nationwide initiative led by the Siemer Institute for Family Stability and supported by the United Way of Central Maryland. In Baltimore, the program was launched by Catholic Charities on May 1, 2012.

Families work one-on-one with a case manager who will assess your family’s strengths, set and work on goals, and connect you to community resources. Intensive case management is provided six to nine months.
Workshops / One-On-One Counseling
Participate in home energy savings workshops to learn ways you can reduce your utility bills. Develop job search skills through one-on-one career counseling or attend the Work for Success boot camp. Improve your financial management through a set of individual and group sessions with experts.
Receive short-term financial assistance so your family can remain housed and your children can succeed in school. Types of financial assistance are determined by each individual’s family’s needs.
