The Coordinated System of Homeless Services (CSHS)

The Coordinated System of Homeless Services (CSHS) is a network of community services and supports that coordinates efforts to end homelessness in Howard County. CSHS is comprised of service providers and government agencies which offer resources to households in need, to prevent loss of stable housing or regain housing that has been lost.  

Eviction Prevention assistance is available through multiple community partners; households needing additional resources may contact the system’s Single Point of Entry for assessment and connection to varying levels of support, including Intensive Case Management. Case managers assist households to:

  • identify and address barriers to housing stability; 
  • connect to resources and ongoing supports; 
  • identify appropriate and affordable housing.  

Other CSHS Supports include:

  • Employment Services
  • Addiction and Trauma Treatment;
  • Support for domestic violence survivors;
