Sober fun at Camden Yards (video)

Thanks to a generous gift from the O’s, 100 of our men were able to enjoy a Baltimore Orioles baseball game together. For some, it was their first baseball game, for others, it was their first sober baseball game, and for all, it was a great memory.

Helping Up Mission 2016 Graduation Banquet

We are very excited this year’s Graduation Banquet, taking place on Sunday April 24th, at Martin’s West. We are expecting 1,500 guests including a variety of community leaders… all celebrating the successes more than 125 men who have broken the grip of addiction and homelessness, and graduated from our one year Spiritual Recovery Program in the past 12 months!

Our banquet theme is “Inspiring Hope”. 500 men receiving help at HUM are on a journey of spiritual recovery and self-discovery that is inspiring hope in each life. In turn, the men are inspiring hope in their families, relationships, communities and workplaces as they return as men of character and contribution. It’s our prayer that you know YOU inspire hope in these men – and their families – through your prayers, encouragement and faithful giving!

And when you support the banquet, as a sponsor or ticket purchaser, or with a gift to celebrate the men, you are helping us reach our $400,000 banquet fundraising goal which helps our annual campaign provide for the needs of 500 men who need us to help them break the life-threatening grip of addiction and homelessness to discover a new life.
