The Helping Up Mission, which has provided housing and drug treatment for adults, will soon offer housing for mothers and their children.

It is a landmark on East Baltimore Street. For more than 100 years, the Helping Up Mission has been helping homeless and drug-addicted men get their lives back on track.

A few years ago, they opened a separate women’s shelter right up the street, and in a few weeks, the shelter will provide housing for mothers with children.

WBAL NewsRadio  talked about that this week with Dan Stoltzfus, the new CEO of the Helping Up Mission, for Sunday’s WBAL News Now Weekend Edition.
