The Way Home Project 2022

Moving in

 

 

On any given night, more than 2,500 people in Baltimore experience homelessness. This year, The Way Home Project will help 35 of them. 

Fueled by Leaders United, a group of United Way donors and advocates, this initiative provides all the necessities of a new home for people who've experienced long-term homelessness. 

Last year, we helped 20 people, including Arthur Byrd, find their way home when they moved into new apartments at Four Ten Lofts in downtown Baltimore. 

Arthur couldn’t afford to pay rent despite a long history of community and care-taking work. Moving into his new home at Four Ten Lofts was an unforgettable day. "At some point, my sister said, 'Put your keys away!' And I said, 'I can't let 'em go,'" Arthur remembers. "I haven't had a place of my own for ten years. And that's a long time not to have your own place." 

When he moved in, his new apartment was fully stocked to help him begin the next chapter of his life— taking care of himself after a lifetime of taking care of others. 

Your contribution to The Way Home Project will give people like Arthur the home goods we take for granted—things like dishes and kitchen utensils, bedding, rugs, towels, vacuums and cleaning supplies, clocks, and a cupboard filled with food. 

Construction is nearing completion on our 2022 project at the Sojourner at Oliver apartments in East Baltimore, and individuals and families will move in this fall. We’re halfway to our goal of $35,000 to provide them with everything they need to make a house a home! Please donate today and help take this project all The Way Home!
