Description

The Theodore House is committed to servicing the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan area. This is a structured program that will provide affordable housing, spiritual advice, counseling, outpatient care, job placement and job readiness to those due who are homeless due to HIV and drug and alcohol addiction.

************************************

ACCESSING PERMANENT HOUSING - At intake, residents work with staff to begin planning their goal of permanent housing. Our staff provides each resident with guidance to determine what living arrangement is appropriate for the resident's successful integration into independent living. A detailed plan is developed to specify strategies for funding housing, and a timetable for implementation.

*************************************

JOB PREPAREDNESS TRAINING - Upon completion of our program, our goal is to have all residents, who are able to work, employed in jobs that provide a living wage, benefits and opportunities for advancement. Counselors from Goodwill Industries, DORS, JERICHO and the Northwest Career Center offer personalized advising, vocational assessments and group workshops to help residents learn and acquire the skills that are necessary to secure and maintain gainful employment.

*************************************

HEALTH CARE - During the intake process, residents are referred to a healthcare facility to obtain a full physical. Residents who do not have medical benefits are referred to one of our partnering healthcare facilities. Residents are also enrolled for PAC benefits during the intake process.

*************************************

HIV EDUCATION AND TESTING - Residents benefit from HIV educational services provided by The Theodore House. All residents are encouraged to get tested for HIV from partnering agencies.

*************************************

CASE MANAGEMENT SERVICES - Our case management services will create relationships between The Theodore House and the resident that will allow for further identification of personal and family issues that may need to be addressed. Additionally, we will assist with providing alternative sources of on-going support to residents and establish a referral system and improve access to community resources.

*************************************

SUBSTANCE ABUSE PREVENTION - The Substance Abuse Prevention program will provide daily monitoring of 12 step meeting attendance and participation, random urinalysis testing, and referral services. For residents entering The Theodore House from substance abuse treatment centers, the program will continue the basic monitoring and support that the resident was being providing prior to moving to the Theodore House.
