Rating: 5 stars   16 reviews

Issues: Mental Health, Homeless & Housing

Location: 140 W. West St Baltimore MD 21230 USA

Mission: At The Baltimore Station, we concentrate on helping those we know most about - those we can do the most for - men who have valiantly served our country and have fallen on hard times. We know that they suffer a special kind of hell, returning to society with the effects of combat (including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), often turning to drugs to silence the trauma. We know the cycle that can spin out of control, leading to poverty, estrangement and homelessness. We know what it takes to break that cycle – a highly structured environment – because most of our staff is in recovery themselves and half are veterans. Recovery is not a “quick fix” battle. It’s a long tough war.
Target demographics: Veterans
Geographic areas served: Baltimore Metro Area
Programs: innovative therapeutic residential treatment program supporting veterans and others who are transitioning through the cycle of poverty, addiction, and homelessness to self-sufficiency.

I have had experiences with the staff, current residents, and graduates of the program at The Baltimore Station, and each of those experiences has changed my life for the better. The staff truly cares about the residents, and gives 100% every day to make sure they are taken care of. The current residents are always very courteous, grateful, and polite. My neighbor is a former resident of The Baltimore Station, and he has become a great friend of mine. He has struggled in life ever since the Vietnam war, and he credits The Baltimore Station with helping to turn his life around. This organization serves a great purpose in my community, and I am very grateful for their existence. I encourage everyone to spend some time here, and get to know the residents and program staff.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it larger.

My experience is one from afar as I live out of state. I do know staff members and volunteers who speak of The Station with such devotion and spend so much of their time working for the fulfillment of its purpose of rehabilitation that I can't help but feel I must say something here. The fundraising events they hold are creative and inspiring and their proactive future-planning and investment really shows the commitment to their cause. Baltimore is served a great service by The Station. p

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated and positive.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

decrease Baltimore's homelessness, crime, drug-abuse and murder rates.
