Continuum of Care

Our Continuum of Care system works to connect people experiencing homelessness or a housing crisis with housing assistance as quickly as possible. As we work toward this goal, people experiencing homelessness may access a variety of programs located throughout the County to meet their basic needs such as: 
  • Emergency shelter 
  • Meals 
  • Showers 
  • Medical care 
Harford County provides approximately 316 year-round beds for single adults and households with children. Additional beds are available during freezing weather activation.  The Continuum of Care, now handled by Harford Community Action Agency, provides: 
  • Emergency Rotating Shelter for singles during winter months (mid-December through mid-March)
  • Emergency shelter and transitional housing space for single adults and families with children 
  • Domestic Violence Shelter for single adults and families with children 
  • Permanent housing placements for single adults and families based on availability and prioritized for those households with the greatest need.
