PARKS Holistic Housing for women? YES!! Our entire team is dedicated to making this project a reality.
PARKS (Positively Affirming Reality & Knowledge in Sisterhood) is a holistic, intentionally, community-based development that provides quality housing to women in Baltimore County, Maryland. Sisterhood Agenda will build 22 beautiful, affordable, eco-friendly units with supportive housing for residents in the Baltimore metropolitan area.
Women are more likely to be caregivers for children and for aging parents. With female pay parity, women get paid less than men for the same job. Housing instability and the lack of safe and affordable housing options heighten the risks for women. For example, in Baltimore County, more than 50 percent of women report domestic violence as the primary cause of homelessness. When women leave, they often leave with children.
Solving the issue
Affordable housing shortages and housing for women in transition create a large void that Sisterhood Agenda is uniquely qualified to fill. Women are more likely to self-actualize and thrive in safe, healing spaces that offer supportive services such as therapeutics and a system of sisterhood support. Sisterhood Agenda’s PARKS Holistic Housing Project responds to this call to action for residents and their children.
While thousands of women require housing, there are not thousands of units available. Vastly under-supplied, there is a gender-specific housing crisis. In response, PARKS is a pilot for the State of Maryland and a model for other states. It is predicted that residents will show benchmark improvements in housing stability and economic security, and mental health.
