Coordinated Intake Screening
Coordinated Intake for homeless services ensures that all people experiencing a housing crisis have fair and equal access and are quickly identified, assessed for, referred, and connected to housing and assistance based on their needs. Those needing services will be prioritized based on the outcome of their needs assessment completed at the time of intake.
WALK-IN SCREENINGS Monday – Thursday 8:30AM-12:00PM and Fridays 10:00AM-12:00PM
Access to shelter is prioritized for those with the greatest need based on standards set by the Federal Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD).
HSP operates three year-round Emergency Shelters to accommodate the needs of homeless men, women, and families.
Safe Haven Shelter
This shelter serves adult men and women who are homeless and suffer from a chronic mental illness.
Cold Weather Shelter – CALL OUR INFOLINE at 410-871-4877
Cold Weather Shelter is open annually from the evening of November 15th until the morning of April 1st. Guests come in for a hot meal, shower, laundry, and a warm place to sleep. There are separate sleeping areas for men and women. All guests must be 18 years of age or older.

Case Management Services
Case management is a collaborative process that assesses, plans, implements, coordinates, monitors, and evaluates the options and services required to meet the client’s health and human service needs. It is characterized by advocacy, communication, and resource management and promotes quality and cost-effective interventions and outcomes.
All residents in our shelters and participants in our housing programs receive case management services. Additionally, case management is provided to those on our shelter waiting list to help them improve their situation until a bed opens in a shelter.
