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.
