BALTIMORE AREA SALVATION ARMY RECEIVES $20,000 GRANT
TO SUPPORT HOUSING SHELTER
The Baltimore Area Command of the Salvation Army received a grant for $20,000 from the Baltimore Women's Giving Circle in May, to support its Booth House Emergency and Transitional Housing Center.
The Salvation Army Booth House Emergency and Transitional Housing Shelter is a housing facility for women, children and families in Baltimore City. Booth House operates 24 hours each day, 365 days per year. The facility consists of a 57-bed, 30-day residency emergency shelter and a 19-bed, 2-year transitional housing unit. The Booth House offers a safe, comfortable environment for those working to rebuild their lives in Baltimore.
In 2008, Booth House served 934 individuals for a total of 22,535 full beds and 30,660 meals. The grant will be used toward continuing services for women and children in Baltimore.
The Baltimore Women's Giving Circle at the Baltimore Community Foundation seeks to improve life for disadvantaged women and their families in the greater Baltimore area. Each year its members pool their contributions and award grants to causes that support their mission.
