@The House, Inc., A Social Settlement House in Baltimore

Empowering Individuals. Building Community.

@TheHouse, Inc. supports  Baltimore’s Park Heights community with a wide range of services to foster individual self-sufficiency, strengthen social connections, and build a better tomorrow.

From sponsoring toy drives and hosting youth summer camps to addressing food insecurity and supporting homeownership, we’re committed to meeting the needs of those who have been chronically underserved.

We achieve our mission by:

  • Providing direct support to meet residents’ basic needs
  • Connecting residents to available resources
  • Conducting educational forums and training sessions
  • Advocating for community investment
  • Collaborating with city and nonprofit agencies.

As a community-based 501(c)(3), @The House relies on the tireless efforts of our dedicated staff and generous volunteers — connected by their shared belief in the right of all people to realize their full potential.

Our Story

@The House was founded in 2011, when Pastor Troy Randall convened a group of compassionate community advocates to as — and answer — “Why?”

Why do people in our community feel alone and abandoned? Why are they denied the help they need and deserve to overcome their challenges? And most significantly, why have our existing governmental, nonprofit, and even faith-based organizations failed to address such pressing and obvious needs?

@The House was created to fill that void through a holistic approach that honors the Mind, Body and Spirit of those we serve. In the process, we became a voice for the voiceless.

A Social Settlement House for the 21st Century

@The House has its roots in the social settlement movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Settlement houses addressed the needs of the urban poor through volunteer work focused on services such as daycare, education, and health care.

Unfortunately, 100-plus years after the first settlement houses, the need to support the neediest among us persists, perpetuated by forces such as systemic inequality and racism.

We share with the early settlement houses a focus on the importance of individual agency and community. The stronger our Arlington and Park Heights communities become, the more opportunities our neighbors will have to overcome obstacles and live full, meaningful lives.

@The House’s Building Initiative 

@The House’s vision is to make our settlement house a true home. In partnership with Comprehensive Housing Assistance, Inc (CHAI) and RM Sovich Architecture, we’ve developed plans to create a building at 5345 Denmore Avenue, a vacant city-owned lot in a perfect location to serve the Arlington community. The space will have the flexibility to meet the needs of children, families, and senior citizens across a wide range of programming, and will serve as the physical and social hub for the community.

Youth Services

From hosting summer camps and our G.O.L.F. (Goals, Opportunities, Leadership, and Fun) collaboration with The First Tee of Baltimore to distributing food and toys to children in shelters, @The House provides a wide range of services and programs to nurture youth. 

Community Outreach

@The House’s efforts in the community extend from creating an Amphitheatre Jazz Garden to securing $250,000 to assist residents with home repairs. 

Senior Services

Our Community garden and Amphitheatre flower garden includes a reading pod for seniors.  

 Our Golf Mission

G.O.L.F. in the Parks Is a Golf infused community-based initiative that facilitates mindfulness, the mind-body connection, self-sufficiency, and fitness within the community we serve. Our program focuses on effective communication, enhances their collaboration skills and critical thinking along with academic supports.

G.O.L.F. (Goals, Opportunity, Leadership, and Fun)  is a collaborative project between @ The House, Inc. and First Tee of Greater Baltimore. First Tee is an international youth development organization that introduces golf and its values to young people from all walks of life. They supplied us with access to their learning centers at the 5 Municipal Golf Courses in MD, where we also teamed up with the Pros for on-the-course training and support.




Last year like all the rest we had a great time with our Youth. This year we can serve 35 inner city youth aged 6-14 years old with Golf instruction, peer support, mental wellness support, arts and crafts, self-awareness interventions, and exploration. While currently housed in the Park Heights community we are looking for a more permanent location at the Northwest Driving Range where our Youth can have a stable home site to grow at within walking distance from their home.  There we will continue to teach Golf theory, course management,  putting, chipping, and effective swing and hitting. Some of our Youth struggle with learning disabilities, emotional distress, broken homes, and crime-driven neighborhoods which limits their growth and eventually makes them a product of their environment.  This program was birthed out of support for not just the Youth we serve but the entire family by linking them to the support needed to help facilitate wellness and wholeness as a unit. 

Phase II 

This year we will develop 2 Cohorts to run simultaneously during the Summer - Cohort 1 (New Birds) beginners/Non-course ready *  Cohort 2 (Eagles) - advanced players/Course ready instruction. Adding more academic support in math and reading will afford us the opportunity to continue building rapport with our participants to assist them in enrolling in our New Afterschool Golf Clinic which will allow us to follow them closer during the school year for academic and emotional support.
