The Maryland Living Center is a transitional living facility for homeless youth, 16 – 21 years old, that aims to successfully transition youth into independent living within 12 -18 months. MLC works to help each individual fulfill their highest potential.
We work to provide guidance in each of our four transitional key points:
We use the TIP (Transition to Independence Program), which includes:
Upon entering the MLC program, each resident takes an independent living skills assessment that identifies their unique needs and skills. The results of this assessment help staff work with each resident to personalize their case plan, making it as beneficial and successful as possible.
As a result of our partnership with the Housing Development Corporation, our facility was entirely renovated from 2012-2013, specifically to house the Maryland Living Center program. Therefore, every apartment in the building gives the residents an independent lifestyle with a full kitchen, bathroom, living room, and bedroom.
