BCCH is an organization comprised of community stakeholders and concerned citizens of Baltimore County. We believe in the inherent value and dignity of all human beings, that housing is a human right, that advocacy is more powerful in collaboration and that it is possible to end homelessness in the county. BCCH was established with the purpose of serving the homeless citizens of Baltimore County by advocating, raising awareness, assessing current trends, informing and educating the public about issues and conditions that impact this vulnerable population.

Selected contractor(s) will work closely with the BCCH board and its members to shape the development of this plan over the course of a 3 to 4 month period beginning in April 2021 and concluding by August 2021.

  2. Design of tool and process for gathering additional input from the online community; and,
  3. Writing and design of the strategic planning document.

Cost Proposal:

Proposals should not include a budget for meeting space rental, food and refreshments, focus group incentives, or mass printing and distribution of the strategic plan.
