Isaih's Story

Join us in welcoming home our friend, Isaih! Isaih is a military veteran and the Co-chair of the Youth Action Board (YAB) - a board responsible for advising Baltimore City's Continuum of Care (CoC) and the Mayor's Office of Homeless Services (MOHS) on improving the quality and effectiveness of the city’s response system to youth homelessness.

Isaih returned to Baltimore after the military, unable to find work or housing. After becoming a client at Youth Empowered Society, Isaih was connected to services through the Youth Homeless Demonstration Program (YHDP) at St. Vincent de Paul. While working with his case manager, Isaih was able to become self-sufficient, obtain vital documents, and receive employment assistance and rapid re-housing.

Inspired by the people who helped him exit homelessness, Isaih wanted to support the unique needs of Baltimore City youth. “Now that I am stably housed, I can advocate for others experiencing homelessness”. We are grateful for the solutions that Isaih brings to the YAB regarding the homeless response system in Baltimore.
