Seedco Programs in Maryland

Seedco’s work in Maryland has been evolving since the establishment of Baltimore operations in 2006, with growth into the Upper Eastern Shore in 2013 and Southern Maryland in 2017.  Our first program was enhancing public benefits access and that has grown to include health care access and workforce development. Seedco’s Maryland operations builds on the organizational model of strong local partnerships integrated with robust direct services.

SNAP Outreach

Many working families, unemployed, seniors, and others struggle to put food on the table. Since 2011, Seedco has helped thousands of Baltimore area residents access vital food benefits. Seedco’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Outreach prevents hunger, helps seniors and families make healthier food choices, and counters misinformation and stigma associated with receiving SNAP benefits, formerly known as food stamps. The barriers are numerous: knowledge, language, and education limitations; pervasive myths; and difficulty accessing in-person assistance. We overcome these barriers by working at community-based sites, providing culturally competent services, and conducting wide outreach and information sharing. In addition, Seedco uses its EarnBenefitsOnline tool to screen individuals for a range of other benefits for which they may qualify.  

In collaboration with CASH Campaign of Maryland, Bon Secours Community Works, and Centro de Ayuda, Seedco disseminates information, provides SNAP eligibility screenings, and directly assists people with completing the SNAP application.  This program is generously supported by the State of Maryland Department of Human Services.

West Baltimore Career Pathways Collaborative

Seedco’s West Baltimore Career Pathways Collaborative engages local employers, service providers, and correctional agencies in establishing career pathways for individuals coming out of the criminal justice system. By helping individuals find a job and establish a path for advancement, Seedco improves their chances of successfully integrating into their communities and staying out of prison.

Since 2015, our program implements training and placement around locally in-demand sectors, including manufacturing and construction, and integrates:

  • access to training, education, and career development services;
  •  case management to address life issues that are barriers for success; and
  • job placement to connect participants in long-term, well-paying jobs

A key partner in outreach and service delivery is Bon Secours Community Works. Other local partners in the West Baltimore CPC include the Maryland Department of Public Safety & Correctional Services, the Baltimore Workforce Investment Board, the Mayor’s Office of Human Services – ReEntry Division, and Job Opportunities Task Force. The US Department of Labor funds this program.
