Contacts In Baltimore
CARC- Chesapeake Area Recovery Communities is located in Baltimore, Md. Our
target population is alcoholics and addicts. Individuals come from
shelters, detox's, courts, street etc.
Residents start is a structured house, with the focus being intensive
treatment of their alcoholism and/or addiction. From this house they move
to group house, and then into houses or apartments of their own. From the
the group house on, the houses are run and managed by the
residents.Residents when they leave the third stages of housing are capable
of purchasing a home or a car of their own. Residents are expected to work,
pursue educational opportunities and become involved in a community
service program of their own choice.
Presently we are searching for funds to purchase and renovate four new
houses. CARC is a 501 3(c) organization. If anyone knows of bankers or
community development contacts in the Baltimore area, we would appreciate
if you could email to us their names and information on contacting them.
