Serenity Place

Once ready for independent living, some Marian House women move to a permanent housing placement, either in the scattered-site Shelter Plus Care program or in Serenity Place. Marian House permanent housing placements include case management and access to support services such as educational and employment assistance as needed. Rental assistance is provided to ensure that rent payments are not more then 30 percent of the families’ annual income. In the scattered-site program, women and often families are assisted with finding suitable housing, and in these situations Marian House enters into a rental agreement with the landlord of an apartment or home in Baltimore City. With the assistance of rental subsidies, women and families are able to live independently despite the rise in rental costs in Baltimore.
