From the moment I saw Dolly's face and read her story, I was hooked into supporting Paul's Place, Inc. Dolly is one of their success stories and continues to be an ambassador for them. Paul's Place, Inc. started out as a soup kitchen but has ended up being much more to the Pigtown community of Baltimore. They provide social services, afterschool programs, community events, laundry facilities, etc. It is a place for those in the communtiy to visit and feel safe. This is necessary as Pigtown is one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in Baltimore. Most importantly Paul's Place, Inc. provides their guests with respect and encouragement.
