The Baltimore Station, Inc.
March 25, 2010

Several years ago, with my daughter, who then was an 8th grader at Friends School of Baltimore, with other students and parents I visited the South Baltimore Station for a Dr. King celebration. It was a dynamic and enriching experience, I believe, for all involved...the recovering veterans, the young people and parents. As a result of that visit, I was invited to conduct a group. For several months I ran a weekly Emotional Intelligence group. I fell in love with that place, the staff and the veterans. What do I love? I love that the staff is so thoroughly committed to transforming the lives of the men that they serve. I love that the men are so dedicated to their recovery. And I am touched and moved by the South Baltimore's Station's ability to be both innovative (I sometimes visit their acupuncture sessions) yet grounded in the principles and philosophies that make recovery work for the veterans who gets the opportunity to experience the South Baltimore Station.
