Review for The Baltimore Station, Inc., Baltimore, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It has been my singular privilege to act as a volunteer group facilitator at The Baltimore Station for 12+ years. My experience has Blessed me beyond measure. Through these years, I have witnessed what can be achieved when the commitment of an innovative staff is met with the courage of clients to reclaim a life thought lost to addiction, despair and homelessness. The result is nothing short of miraculous! The clients not only reclaim productives lives of sanity and sobriety but go on to achieve so very much more. As one example, they often complete their education which has been disrupted. Some have started by attending literacy classes and earning a GED while others have started at the community college level and gone on to earn college degrees. Still others, having earned undergraduate degrees, go on to earn advanced degrees and become alcohol and substance abuse counselors themselves! To make such an investment is the greatest testimony of the centrality of The Station in their life. Prompted by my volunteer experience at The Station, I returned to college and have earned a Masters Degree in alcohol and substance abuse counseling.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Witnessing the growth, development and maturation of the client.

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

Committed and innovative.

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

Serve a budgeoning population and provide services to women.
