JHR serves homeless citizens of Baltimore by providing life-sustaining services and by offering access to jobs, housing and recovery from addiction. Our programs served 4,890 homeless men and women in 2011, offering hope, healing and the chance for a new beginning to individuals in our community who have – quite literally – reached the end of their rope. Proceeds from CHARM CITY KARAOKE 2012 will be used to support this mission.

24 hours a day, 365 days a year, JHR offers the full continuum of care to individuals in the Baltimore community who are struggling with homelessness and addiction. A homeless man who is challenged with substance abuse can literally come off the streets, through our programs and back into healthy, productive life.

Our Housing Resource Center program, often referred to as “Code Blue”, is the largest emergency homeless shelter in Baltimore, open without cost or entrance requirements. This program provides shelter, food and referrals for services to 275 men and women daily – 350 in times of extreme cold.

JHR’s Carrington House is a residential transitional substance abuse recovery program for men in West Baltimore, designed to give them the tools and life skills they need to turn their backs on addiction once and for all and rebuild their lives. Carrington House was JHR’s first program, and it lies at the heart of our continuum of care. Andrew Falkenstein was a client in JHR’s Housing Resource Center when he learned about Carrington House. A 2010 graduate of the program, Falkenstein summed up what makes Carrington House so special. “Other programs taught me how to stop (using),” he said, “Carrington House taught me how to LIVE.” Like many other men who have come through our programs, Andrew has joined JHR’s staff, extending a helping hand to others who have found themselves where he was – at the end of their rope.

Located in West Baltimore and in scattered sites throughout the City, JHR’s Lighthouse Community and Veterans permanent housing programs offer men coming out of Carrington House or another transitional recovery program the opportunity to live for up to five years in alcohol and drug-free housing where their recovery efforts can be supported. Men in our Lighthouse Communities and Veterans programs are employed, and they pay 30% of their salary in rent. They are also encouraged to save for the future.
