    Although there are other residential programs for persons with mental disabilities, there is no known Maryland (MD) residential facility solely devoted to helping homeless young women, especially those diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. In fact, in 2010, the state of Maryland ranked 2nd highest for AIDS cases reported among all U.S. states; making MD's cases 2.05% higher than the national average. There is also documented proof that homeless youth face even greater barriers than homeless adults. Specifically, where they lack options, have less education and little to no income compared to most adults. As such, it would be hugely beneficial for homeless young women to have a place of refuge.
