Program Compliance Officer II

The Mayor's Office of Homeless Services (MOHS)

About the organization

The Journey Home , Baltimore City’s plan to make homelessness rare and brief, focuses on four major goal areas that address the root causes of homelessness: affordable housing, comprehensive health care, sufficient incomes, and preventive and emergency services. The plan is overseen by the Continuum of Care (CoC), which is a coalition of service providers, funders, advocates, government agencies, and community stakeholders working together to make homelessness rare and brief.

The Mayor's Office of Homeless Services (MOHS) is the designated lead agency for the CoC and works to implement federal, state, and local policy and best practices in addition to administering and monitoring homeless services grants. MOHS administers approximately $48 million annually for programs that include street outreach, emergency shelter, transitional housing, rapid rehousing, permanent supportive housing, Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA), meal programs, and eviction prevention. Each year, through a network of partner providers, the homeless services program delivers housing and supportive services to over 25,000 individuals and families.
