Maryland Oaks Crossing
Strengthening at-risk families
Maryland Oaks Crossing gives low-income households a place
We offer a two-year program that includes an attractive and affordable transitional housing community with wrap-around services for the entire family. Participants in this program can develop greater self-sufficiency and may increase their annual income. Incoming participants engage in case management to develop life plans to meet their individual needs.
Services for adults include job and job-training referral, budgeting, life coaching, and “Getting Ahead in the Workplace,” a 15-week workshop focused on moving up and out of poverty. Youth services include academic tutoring, mentoring, summer enrichment, Bible study and other programs. Input is received from residents in order to research, and possibly develop and offer, new programs as needed.
This community offers two- and three-bedroom manufactured homes for rent. The monthly rent for a two-bedroom is $625 and includes water. The monthly rent for a three-bedroom is $750 and includes water. We only accept families with children into the program.
