“A less tangible, but perhaps more important, feature of Sojourner Place at Argyle will be a lot of support – and not a lot of judgment – for recently homeless people. That’s the concept behind this type of shelter, known as permanent supportive housing and operated according to “housing first” principles – the idea that people should be given shelter first, then helped as they work through financial, drug, alcohol or mental health problems.” —Blueprint For Housing the Homeless Includes Support and a Sense of Community, BaltimoreBrew
This project is a recipient of the 2019 Excellence in Permanent Supportive Housing Award, presented by the Maryland Affordable Housing Coalition.
