What Is Catherine’s Cottage?
The Catherine’s Cottage program is a 24 hour, 365-days a year emergency housing facility that is located in a confidential area in Baltimore city. The location is confidential to protect the survivors we will serve. This 9-bedroom home has been re-designed to serve thirteen adults and three small children at any given time. The facility will provide a safe, comfortable environment where survivors of human trafficking can begin their path to restoration. The home is equipped with a full kitchen where residents can prepare their meals, a full dining room, living room, a welcome room for reception staff, and a comfort room will serve a dual purpose for overnight staff and one-on-one sessions with members. Catherine’s Cottage is projected to serve 156 adults and 36 children yearly. Ideally, survivors will receive long-term placement within 30 days however, services may be extended, throughout four phases, to meet survivors’ individual needs.
