History And Mission

Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) works to prevent and end homelessness for vulnerable individuals and families by providing quality, integrated health care and promoting access to affordable housing and sustainable incomes through direct service, advocacy, and community engagement.

One of 19 original demonstration projects funded in 1985 by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Pew Charitable Trust, and the US Conference of Mayors, HCH has since evolved into Maryland’s leading provider of comprehensive health-related services for adults and children experiencing homelessness.

In Baltimore, HCH delivers pediatric, adult, and geriatric medical care, mental health services, social work and case management, addiction treatment, dental care, vision assistance, HIV services, outreach, services, supportive housing, and access to education and employment for thousands of City residents. HCH ensures similar services statewide through grants and technical assistance to partner agencies in the City of Frederick and Montgomery, Harford, and Baltimore Counties.

With strong public and private support, HCH is guided by a vision of a future without homelessness in which all Marylanders have access to comprehensive health care, affordable housing, and livable incomes.
