DHCD and HABC Help Create Affordable Housing for the Homeless at Sojourner Place at Argyle Apartments

The Department of Housing & Community Development (DHCD) Commissioner Michael Braverman and the Housing Authority of Baltimore City (HABC) Chief Operating Officer Nick Calace joined Episcopal Housing Corporation (EHC) to celebrate the grand opening of Sojourner Place at Argyle, a two-story 12-unit apartment building for formally homeless single individuals in the Upton neighborhood of Baltimore City.

EHC will use a housing first approach and will house people who meet a variety of homeless definitions. Sojourner Place at Argyle offers subsidized rental units at affordable rates and supportive services to the homeless and citizens with special needs with incomes at or below 60% of the Area Median Income, adjusted for family size ("AMI").

HABC will provide 12 Project Based Vouchers to house homeless households that were awarded under the Housing Choice Voucher Program. The new construction of this building addresses the vacant lots on a major thoroughfare, improves the lives of individuals through the provision of affordable housing, and provides a visible, major development in this section of the City.
