BCPL and BCCH Street Card
 

Street Card: Resources for Help for Baltimore County Homeless 2015This webpage is an online version of the library's paper Street Card. It was created by the Baltimore County Public Library in cooperation with the Baltimore County Communities for the Homeless (BCHH). BCCH is a network of volunteers formed to eliminate homelessness through education, government relations, advocacy and community development.
 

The print version of the Street Card [PDF] can be downloaded for printing but is originally intended to be printed on 11 x 17" stock and accordion folded. For a paper copy or for additional copies of the Street Card, visit any Baltimore County Public Library branch or call 410-887-6196.
 

For addition information, you can also contact Baltimore County's Homeless Services Coordinator at 410-887-2886.
