On Friday, June 9th, our fabulous partners for the PSY Baltimore Pilot met for lunch and a pilot kick-off conversation about how three distinct programs for supporting youth experiencing homelessness--rapid rehousing, host homes, and family and kinship strengthening-- can work in an integrated and collaborative way.
One theme from Friday's meeting was resoundingly clear: Baltimore's providers are committed to assuring that all young people in the city have access to a safe, secure home and are doing the groundwork necessary to make this commitment a reality.
We are thrilled to partner with Star Track at the University of Maryland on family and kinship strengthening, as well as free individual therapy and trans-inclusive healthcare services; Youth Empowered Society! on rapid rehousing; and St. Ambrose Housing Aide on host homes.
Keep your eye out for an official launch announcement in the coming weeks. And in the meantime, we are so grateful for Baltimore's partners who are walking the walk every day.
