Community Resources Directory

Community Resources 2022 is an annual directory developed and published by the Baltimore County Department of Aging (BCDA). BCDA has partnered with the Baltimore County Department of Housing and Community Development, the Commission on Disabilities, and the Baltimore City Government to create one regional resource directory for Baltimore’s communities. The directory’s content has been updated and expanded to accommodate resources and services that range from adult day care to recreation and travel. Community Resources 2022 also contains a comprehensive category supporting disability resources ranging from children to adults.

BCDA is pleased to offer free copies of Community Resources 2022 to the public. Pick up copies of the directory at BCDA’s 20 senior centers and Baltimore County Public Libraries. Interested parties may also call BCDA’s MAP Office at 410-887-2594 for one mailed copy. We are pleased to offer an accessible option including a "read aloud" feature for the Community Resources Directory Online. For those who wish to access the publication using their smart phones, please note the QR code on the cover.
