Our Residential Programs exist to provide long-term assistance to individuals. Our hope for these programs is that people will leave their stay with us healed, refreshed, and empowered to follow their God-given dreams.


What is a Growth Home?

A Growth Home is a 9 month residential program that is broken into 5 phases. Each phase provides a strong foundation for spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental growth. Through classes, serving opportunities, mentorship, counseling, and a strong community, our hope is that our residents will leave their stay with us feeling equipped and empowered for their next steps.

Our Growth Homes have multiple post-graduation tracks for the individuals that we serve:

  • Education Track (additional 6 months)

  • Work Track (additional 6 months)

  • CityBeat Internship Track (additional time depending on individual)




for homeless and addicted women

Who is this home for?

“The Nest” Growth Home is specifically for homeless or addicted women. This is not a temporary shelter or a halfway house. This home is for those who want to commit to a 9-12 month, structured Christian recovery program.

How can I help?

You can donate by clicking here. It costs $6,500 a year to house one individual. That’s a little over $540 a month, or $125 a week.

You can also have the opportunity for individuals to sponsor individual rooms within our Growth Home as part of our Adopt-A-Room program. Learn more by clicking here.

How can I or someone I know get into the Growth Home?

You can start the process by submitting an online application at the link below, or you can email Ashley Michael at ashley@citybeatbaltimore.org if you have any questions. We will schedule an interview from there, and then work to get you into the home if you meet the program requirements.

Do I have to detox before I come?

CityBeat’s Growth Homes are not a detox facility, and therefore we ask that all individuals detox before they come into our home.
