To accommodate the unique needs of the children within our care, the Board of Child Care operates several community-based group homes in Maryland. The homes better allow children to stay integrated within their own communities, while acquiring independent living skills.

Nicodemus Transitional Group Home, in Baltimore County, houses five females, ages 15-20, the Hagerstown Transitional Group Home, in Washington County, houses four males, ages 15 to 19, and the Gateway Transitional Group Home, in Baltimore County, houses four males or females, ages 15 to 20. The homes are part of the Semi-Independent Living Program. To earn entry into the program, residents must demonstrate academic achievement and post-education goals, program success and clinical participation.

The Safe Haven Group Home in Anne Arundel County houses five adolescent males. Offering a unique collaboration between residential staff and licensed social workers from BCC's Treatment Foster Care Program, the Home helps the youth transition from more restrictive placements to family placements.
