Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training (MCVET)
The Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training (MCVET) is serving more than 250 veterans daily, through five distinct programs -- a Day Drop-In Program, an Emergency Housing Program (13 weeks), a Transitional Housing Program (up to two years), a Follow-up Program, and 80 Single Room Occupancy apartments (SRO).

A natural progression will be to go from the Day Drop-in Program, to the Emergency Program, to the Transitional Housing Program, to the SRO. Veteran applicants from outside MCVET's program, including female veterans, are also accepted into the SRO program, provided they meet the eligibility requirements. As the veterans enrolled at MCVET travel through this continuum, they receive an array of services that support our primary goal of empowering them to return to the families and communities.
   
MCVET has provided services to more than 4,000 homeless veterans since 2000. In 2013, more than 75% of MCVET graduates left and entered housing. Since 2009, more than 650 veterans have found full-time employment with wages averaging $12.45 and hour.

Project PLASE
Project PLASE serves approximately 450 individuals in our Transitional and Permanent Housing programs each year and thousands over the past 36 years.

We bring hope, restore dignity and end the cycle of homelessness for clients and their families. Our work is a communal effort. Project PLASE relies on dedicated volunteers and supporters to make our work possible.

Project PLASE serves 450 homeless people across their housing programs each year and has helped thousands of homeless people get off the streets.  They provide a variety of support services to help formerly incarcerated people, people living with HIV/AIDS, people with mental illness, and people fighting substance addiction.

The Baltimore Station
At The Baltimore Station, we concentrate on helping those we know most about – those we can do the most for – men who have valiantly served our country and have fallen on hard times.

We know that they suffer a special kind of hell, returning to society with the effects of combat (including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), often turning to drugs to silence the trauma. We know the cycle that can spin out of control, leading to poverty, estrangement and homelessness. We know what it takes to break that cycle – a highly structured environment – because most of our staff is in recovery themselves and half are veterans. Recovery is not a “quick fix” battle. It’s a long tough war.  

The Baltimore Station provides support for homeless veterans and nonveterans suffering from addiction.  Over 144 men are turning their lives around at The Baltimore Station; 70% of program graduates have gone on to live drug- and alcohol-free lives.
