Humanim is a private, not-for-profit agency which was founded in 1971 to respond to the needs of individuals with disabilities. Originally founded to provide vocational services to adults with disabilities, Humanim has grown to provide a comprehensive array of clinical, residential and vocational services in order to promote the success of adults and children with disabilities throughout Maryland.

Humanim has placed a heavy emphasis on providing innovative services to youth with disabilities, to assist them in transitioning from school to the world of work. Since 1997, Humanim has partnered with the National Organization on Disability to implement the Start On Success (SOS) Program, a paid internship program targeting high school students receiving special education services in Baltimore City.

The agency has a strong track record of providing disadvantaged youth with the experiences and supports necessary to become productive members of their communities.
