The Homeless Outreach Program (HOP) provides services to citizens of Baltimore County who are homeless and are victims of domestic violence, have substance use, are veterans, have HIV/AIDS, have a psychiatric disability or who are chronically homeless. We meet homeless individuals throughout Baltimore County wherever they are — on the streets, in campsites, at shelters.
Those who are eligible meet with a case manager to develop a service plan with a goal to remove barriers to housing. Case managers can assist with social security applications to expedite benefits. Individuals can apply for housing rental assistance, and other entitlements and receive help in locating housing.
The Towson outreach site is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm at 609 Baltimore Avenue. Laundry and shower services are offered and outreach workers are available for consultation.
To receive information and/or assistance Monday – Friday contact the Milford Mill location at 410-653-6190 and ask to speak with the Homeless Outreach person on duty.
Homeless Outreach for Unaccompanied Youth provides services to unaccompanied homeless youth living in Baltimore County who are under the age of 25 and lack a fixed residence or are fleeing an unsafe or violent situation. The Youth Outreach worker is available to engage on the street, in the community, and in shelters to connect individuals with resources in the area.
