What is the Celebration Housing Program?

The Celebration Housing Program is designed to help homeless veterans achieve and maintain housing stability. Project PLASE puts an emphasis on individualized case management which maximizes the veteran’s opportunities to realize his or her goals.

Who is eligible?

Homeless veterans—male, female and veteran headed households may apply. The priority focus is assisting those who have been chronically homeless.

How do I find out if I’m eligible?

To inquire about eligibility please call Project PLASE at 410.837-1400, ext. 174.

Also, you could speak to a Navigator at any other homeless service organization. A Navigator can submit an application to the Mayor’s Office of Homeless Services on behalf of a homeless veteran for this housing program.

Case Management Provided:

The purpose of the case management is to support the veteran in their housing, to address issues around their health and disabilities, and to help persons maintain housing stability and to grow, in all areas possible.

Project PLASE’s approach includes the Housing First model with intensive one-on-one, Master level case management coupled with the services of a Veteran Peer Advocate. Case Managers will work with each Veteran and/or family to determine their needs and work actively to stabilize the household. We focus on housing being maintained and supports accessed, individually tailored to assure flexibility, effectiveness, and stability.

We do whatever is needed to assist Veterans strengthen their confidence and abilities to maintain community-based housing, address and diminish barriers or establish supports in the community as needed— for the long run.

Subsidized Housing Access:

Housing access is based on the Rental Assistance Program-low income to be located in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.

These units are subsidized through HUD local access. Residents may pay up to 30% of their adjusted income for monthly rent. The subsidies pay the balance of the rent to make market rate housing accessible to extremely low income homeless citizens.
