A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams.
– Dr. William A. Ward
Moving to permanent housing is a dream comes true for homeless families. Dayspring’s Permanent Supportive Housing Program serves 64 families in scattered-site, rent-subsidized housing and supportive services. Case managers assist families to work cooperatively with their landlords, maintain their homes, seek or maintain employment, and provide a nurturing environment for their children. Parents are encouraged to participate in their children’s school or pre-school programs and to become engaged community members.
Case managers visit weekly or as needed. Participants are required to participate in support groups and other activities and to develop family plans that include short and long-term goals they hope to achieve.
Dayspring receives referrals through Coordinated Access of Baltimore City’s Mayor’s Office of Human Services.
