Light House Homeless Prevention Support Center is supported by a consortium of 12 churches in Annapolis, Maryland. The project includes a 45-bed shelter, four family apartments, bag lunch and grocery distribution center, an employment resource center, garden space, a training kitchen, and multiple other resources for people in crisis.
A trellised entry garden provides a welcoming transition for individuals in need.
The light-filled library of community-donated books provides a comfortable setting for small groups to gather.
Individual quilts, handmade by local artisans, provide a warm cover for each bed in the men's dormitory.
Flexible family units organized around a shared living, dining, and children's play area build a renewed sense of community engagement, while computer workstations allow residents to connect to resources and job opportunities.
Culinary training is provided in association with local chefs and Anne Arundel Community College.
Sustainable features abound on this project, earning it a LEED Silver rating.
