Community for Life



What is Community for LifeSM

The Maryland Community for Life (CFL)SM is a creative and unique program that provides a package of services for homeowners and renters. Developed for older adults living independently in their own homes, the Maryland Community for LifeSM program delivers key services designed to navigate predictable home maintenance, transportation, and community access needs in a cost-effective and supportive manner.

What Services are Included?

For a monthly fee, members receive, at a minimum, the following services:
  1. ​​Basic home repair and maintenance by a community "Handyman", a list of vetted contractors, and contract review 
  2. Regular contact with a "Service Navigator" to help coordinate access to services and to assist with any needs that may arise
  3. Transportation to doctor appointments, grocery stores, shopping, social events, and more.

Who is eligible for the program?

Adults must be residents of Maryland and age 65 or older. There are no health or income qualifications for the program. ​
