Renowned jazz sensation, Maysa, will perform at FACES 2013, the major fundraiser for The Children’s Home in Catonsville, will be held Oct. 25 at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore.

The Children's Home in Catonsville is celebrating a 150-year legacy of caring for Maryland’s at-risk children and youth both inside and outside the family structure!! A detailed history is attached, but in short…it was established in 1863 as an orphanage for children abandoned due to the Civil War and its programs and services have continued to evolve to meet the needs of the community. The Children’s Home is now recognized as one of Maryland’s premier providers of short- and long-term residential treatment care for Maryland youth, ages 13–21, who are victims of abuse, neglect, abandonment or family crisis and may be in need of structured and supervised care.

-A unique aspect of the event is its silent auction. Guests will bid on original youth-inspired artwork created by The Children’s Home residents.
