Downtown Partnership’s homeless outreach principles are simple. Identify persons living in places not intended for human habitation. Build relationships with them based on trust and environment. Help them connect with opportunities to improve their health and well-being.
Our outreach team can help connect individuals to housing, addiction treatment, mental health services, career development resources, and more. Contact us today.
Downtown Partnership’s Outreach Team was recently honored at Joy Baltimore‘s MET Gala and was awarded the 2022 Community Impact Award for their diligent work connecting Downtown’s unhoused community members with important housing, mental health, addiction recovery, and professional development resources.
The Homeless Outreach team was able to reduce the size of one of the largest homeless encampments in the city from 43 to 4 occupants in 2020. This was done through increased connection to housing and social services. The reduction of occupants in this location would not have been possible without collaborations with DPOB Clean Street Ambassadors (CSAs), the Mayor’s Office of Homeless Services (MOHS), and People Encouraging People (PEP).
The Homeless Outreach Team met the store owner’s request to help clear the store entrance, where homeless individuals were camping out. The Team was able to relocate these individuals and continues to provide services to them.

The Homeless Outreach Team coordinated the “adoption” of a family of 16 whose mother was one of the first cases of COVID-19 in Baltimore City. Our team was able to provide special gifts for every child and collaborated with Joy Baltimore to provide even more presents.
