Peer Recovery

Harford Community Action Agency helps intake clients for peer recovery assistance.  We help connect individuals and families to resources and provide gap funding for services when needed.


HCAA will provide peer coaching and community resource referrals to clients at HCAA as well as in the community.

These goals support the County’s Strategic Goals to “strengthen families” and will contribute to the County’s efforts to prevent homelessness, and connect at-risk individuals and families with the support they need to live a healthy and stable life. In addition, these goals support the County’s efforts to combat opioid and other drug and dependency issues by linking vulnerable individuals to a recovery coach who knows the intricacies of addiction and can provide insight and guidance through the process of recovery.

Funds will be used to pay a Peer Recovery coach already in place at HCAA.
