Fighting to End Homelessness across Maryland, Cardin to Visit Helping Up Mission in Baltimore
 
Monday, August 29 at 11:00AM, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.) will tour the Helping Up Mission in Baltimore, a faith-based center to help homeless men fight addiction and get their lives back on track. He will meet with participants and hear from leadership on the challenges facing the facility. Media are invited to join the tour and the discussion.
“The epidemic of abuse and addiction is a public health crisis that too often goes hand-in-hand with homelessness.
