Patrons for Peace Project, Inc.

Patrons for Peace Project, Inc. is a non-profit organization located in Laurel, Maryland committed to providing alternative types of support and creative resources to help homeless individuals and consumers of mental health services achieve and maintain a quality of life with dignity. Through no fault of their own, many individuals we serve have not been able to navigate through traditional programs. As a result, they have given up hope after encountering a “system” they think does nothing but create barriers and cause frustration. Many individuals we serve have “fallen between the cracks”. The systems are set up in a manner that is not conducive to help the population we target. Some people have no transportation, suffer from memory problems, struggle with addiction, are easily frustrated, or simply have given up hope. Getting around and keeping appointments frequently is a chore that is not possible for them.

Our on-going mission involves working to help these individuals attain and maintain their maximum level of independence. We start by micromanaging each client’s struggles and walk beside them — “hand-holding” when necessary. We accompany them to appointments, advocating each step of the way. Our comprehensive services include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Obtaining SSI and SSDI
  • Evaluations/treatment from doctors and nurse practitioners
  • Cognitive assessments
  • Housing
  • Legal services/representation
  • Transportation throughout the USA
  • Investigative use of a detective (Family history, criminal background, etc.)
  • Veterinarian services for homeless individuals’ pets
  • Referrals to treatment centers for addictions
  • Referrals to charitable hospice care
  • Setting up mobile mental health treatment
  • Purchasing tangible items
  • Paying court fines/fees
  • Resource identification and coordination
