BENEFITING: Rebuilding Together Baltimore, Inc.
My name is Kristin Maller and I am an AmeriCorps member at Rebuilding Together Baltimore. I am fundraising for Glenwood Life Counseling Center's Recovery Garden. Glenwood Life has served low-income Baltimore residents struggling with drug addiction for 44 years. The staff plans to use the Recovery Garden to integrate gardening lessons with recovery strategies. Please consider donating and/or sharing this link. Any amount helps! __________________________________________________________
1 in 10 Baltimoreans is addicted to heroin. Glenwood Life Counseling Center provides many services to low-income residents struggling with addiction. The center provides methadone treatment, counseling services, HIV testing, housing assistance, and mental health screenings and referrals. The center also incorporates recovery strategies into meditation, knitting, art, and other workshops. Until now, most of these services have happened behind closed doors. The Glenwood Life Center would like to build a Recovery Garden in the vacant lot across the street from the Center but need more funds to make the garden a reality.
Rebuilding Together Baltimore (RTB) is a non-profit organization focused on community revitalization and safe & healthy housing. RTB selects two neighborhood each year to revitalize through the completing of home repairs for low-income homeowners and community beautification projects. For the past two years, RTB has worked in the Woodbourne-McCabe neighborhood, where the Glenwood Life Counseling Center is located. This project will help beautify the neighborhood, and directly benefit Glenwood Life's clients in their recovery and health.
