Housing Upgrades to Benefit Seniors (HUBS) is an initiative created by a collaboration of service providers and funded by the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation and the Leonard and Helen R. Stulman Charitable Foundation. A Leadership Team composed of Civic Works, Green & Healthy Homes Initiative Baltimore, Neighborhood Housing Services of Baltimore, and Rebuilding Together Baltimore is administering the program and providing operational oversight. Six different sites received a sub-grant from Civic Works to coordinate housing and related services for Baltimore City older adults while also improving their health and safety, preserving the integrity of their properties, and extending the time that they can remain in their homes.

Social Workers and staff members based at each site work with clients one-on-one through assessing their home modification needs and determining other community resources that may improve the quality of their lives. By providing this personalized service, more older adults will access the services that they are eligible for and remain in their homes for an extended period of time. Learn more by reading the HUBS program brochure.

HUBS Is now accepting referrals through the City of Baltimore’s Department of Housing & Community Development Neighborly online application portal.
