Baltimore City Overdose Alert - A spike in overdoses was detected on Wednesday, May 23 in Southwest Baltimore. Such spikes are often related to tainted or particularly potent heroin (including heroin laced with fentanyl). Please share this information and encourage family, friends and neighbors to get trained to administer the overdose-reversing medication, Naloxone.
These core values were identified by Health Care for the Homeless staff, clients and community members. Each year staff members honor those peers who best embody the core values with a staff Core Values award. These six staff members best embodied our core values in 2017. Our “HCH-er at Heart” best embodied them all.
Anna works with clients that others shy away from in her role as lead therapist case manager on the supportive housing team. She motivates them to engage in their own care and to try to grow beyond the walls of Health Care for the Homeless. Through her care, she's been able to help some of the sickest people transition from our services to lives in the community.

As a psychiatric occupational therapist, Caitlin's unceasing positivity enourages both co-workers and clients. She is a tireless advocate for our clients with traumatic brain injuries, and while realistic in her assessment of their limitations, she is optimistic and brave in developing goals for their recovery.
Gerardo is inquisitive; he asks hard and important questions, when many of us do not. And his work is led by an overarching spirit of inclusion—he strives to bring eveyone in, and leave nobody out. As our community relations coordinator, Gerardo helps to make sure that everyone in our communinty is treated equally and fairly.
After 20 years at Health Care for the Homeless, Pete continues to show up to work day after day ready to fight for our clients and their access to health care. As Medicare/MCO coordinator, his knowlege about Medicare is unmatched; he helps others navigate what is a very frustrating and confusing system. He is extremely supportive to clients and co-workers alike.
A behavioral health consultant at our West Baltimore clinic, Ebony believes that healthy staff make for healthy clients. She leads a nutrition group to equip her clients with the tools and resources necessary to lead healthy lives, and does the same for fellow staff members by encouraging healthy eating challenges, relaxation methods and positive dialogue.
Clementine works to get some of our most vulnerable clients housed as a peer advocate. A quiet spirit, she has a genuine way of building relationships with those around her.
