Located in Baltimore City, Maryland, Volunteers of America Chesapeake's Paca House is a permanent housing initiative that provides support services for low income men and women who were homeless or facing homelessness. Paca House accepted its first residents in December 1996 after extensive rehabilitation of two historic buildings and new construction of a building that connects them.
Of the 106 available apartments, there are 76 single room only units (SROs) and 30 efficiencies. Residents in the SROs share kitchens, bathrooms and recreation areas. Resident with special needs may be eligible to reside in the self-contained efficiency apartments and additional support services are available to people who are mentally challenged.
