Community Assistance Network, Inc. operates Community Outreach Centers located in Hillandale, Essex, Rosedale and Randallstown.

Empowering low-income Baltimore County residents to move toward self-sufficiency requires one-on-one attention with an experienced Community Resource Specialist (CRS). CRS help stabilize low-income families by navigating clients through CAN's community partners for services. All activities include action steps for clients to move themselves toward greater stability and growth by promoting self-worth, encouraging personal responsibility, and providing linkages to community resources. CRS also work to improve and expand public awareness of the services CAN provides.
