Anne Arundel Catholic Charities assistance programs.
While a number of resources are offered by the Anne Arundel Catholic Charities, a focus is on helping seniors, meeting the nutritional needs of the low income and also administering general Family Services. Case managers seek to empower and stabilize families and ensure they are able to receive the assistance that they need.
Housing programs are available from a resource known as Sarah's House. This is a supportive housing program for the very low income and/or homeless. It will provide families with emergency rent, deposits, and transitional housing. Services are offered for people facing imminent eviction as well as people who are currently homeless. It can help families get off the streets and find a stable home to live in.
Several other housing programs are offered as well for children, people with disabilities and others in Anne Arundel County. An example is the In-Home Intervention Program which can help keep children in their homes. Gallagher Residential is for those Anne Arundel adults that have some form of intellectual disabilities. It offers a comprehensive range of supportive housing options to those who qualify.
Senior programs from Anne Arundel Catholic Charities
A number of resources are offered, some in partnership with non-profits such as the Maryland Agency on Aging. Other services may be federal government administered.
Information is provided from Answers for the Aging. A case manager from Catholic Charities will provide elderly residents of the county with free referrals and guidance. The topics covered will be wide ranging and can include health care, prescription medications, energy assistance, and government programs such as Medicare. The main number is 410-646-0100.
Senior Housing is scattered across the region. The charity partnered with other groups to create communities of affordable housing units. Many of the locations will also offer additional services for senior citizens who live in the units. Catholic Charities promotes and nurtures a spirit of community, wellness and purpose among the residents. Dial 443.798.3423 for more details or to apply.
Odenton Senior Housing includes Friendship Village. This is made up of over 100 low income housing units/apartments for older adults. It gives people a safe and affordable place to live.
Senior Support Services offers the elderly and older adults a helping, caring hand. The reason this is offered is in an effort to allow people to continue to live independently. Daily meals, including dinner and lunch are offered as well as weekly housekeeping. Look into their laundry and personal services as well. The lunch meal is provided in cooperation between Catholic Charities as well as the senior nutrition program of the local Area Agency on Aging (AAA). A subsidy or voucher program is also available to those eligible for help, and this voucher can help people pay for basic needs.
Villa Maria is a partner organization. The location is a behavioral health clinic that provides clients with prescription medication management and therapy services for families and individuals. Applicants need to already be qualified for Medicaid and/or Maryland Child Health Insurance.
Another resource offered by Villa Maria are their Behavioral Health Clinics. The sites offer a number of outpatient services throughout Maryland for those patients who are eligible for Medicaid and the state of Maryland Child Health Insurance. Some of the medical bill assistance offered includes individual and family therapy, medication management, information on community clinics and other services.
Food and meals may be offered from the Hunger-Free Communities Partnership. The mission of this program is to end childhood hunger that may be occurring in Maryland. Hot meals, bags of food and other items may be passed out.
