New! Carpenter House Careers

We are proud that through creative partnerships we can work to help tackle one of our city’s major barriers to success – quality employment.
Carpenter House Communities
The lack of affordable housing is a significant hardship for low-income and single parent households, preventing them from meeting the basic needs of nutrition, healthcare, education and financial stability. Carpenter House Communities (CHC) looks to address these issues.
Special Delivery is a program that recruits Carpenter House participants to deliver toys, food and clothing during the holidays to their neighbors and other disadvantaged families in Baltimore. This provides our youth with perspective and the opportunity to give back.
Shutdown Academy is a development program for boys and girls designed to empower them to reach their fullest potential through the core values of integrity, honor and respect. It creates a rich, dynamic learning environment with unique educational opportunities for our students.
