“Our desire is that we will build a sense of community, family stability, and hope for a brighter future”
– Pamela Talabis, Ph.D. Executive Director
Dayspring operates a transitional housing program for 18 families in east Baltimore. Families with a parent of 18 years or older with a history of homelessness and substance abuse qualify for the program. Dayspring is unique among transitional housing programs as we take children up to the age of 16 and multiple-children families.
Services and linkage to community resources are provided by on-site staff members: case managers, substance abuse counselor, mental health counselor, community health nurse and children’s program director. Trauma-informed and trauma-specific services are provided to address the complex links between violence, trauma, and addiction.
Interventions are comprehensive to address overall goals to remain drug free, retain stable housing, develop self-determination, and develop positive family relationships. Focus is maintained on children’s needs and family stability.
