What You'll Get
As part of St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore's efforts to aid those experiencing hunger, homelessness, and poverty, the organization began its Cottage Avenue Community Program (CAC) in 2000 to help facilitate the transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency for area families. The program supports families transitioning out of homelessness with an array of services including temporary, furnished housing, support groups, and case management.
The CAC program provides each family it serves with two years of housing in either a three-bedroom, single family residence or a two-bedroom duplex apartment in an established neighborhood. When a family first arrives at a CAC residence, they come home to a place filled with household and kitchen supplies such as utensils, linens, dishes, furniture, and appliances. Upon completing the program, individuals move into permanent housing and bring along the items and furnishings from their CAC homes, which then undergoes general repairs and is re-stocked with the very same items for the next residents. Last year, the CAC program aided 68 individuals, 65% of whom were children under the age of 18.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore’s Cottage Avenue Community furnish transitional housing for families emerging from homelessness. If G-Team members raise $400, then CAC can furnish a home with necessities including linens, dishware, and small appliances for one family transitioning out of an emergency shelter. Each additional donation will go toward supplying a transitional home for another family.
