Children At Shelter Visit 34th Street… In A Limo

December 18, 2009

Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County supporter Jo Ellen Adams, of Techalloy, gave the children staying at the Safe Shelter a nice gift this holiday season. For two nights last week a limousine pulled up to the Family Crisis Center to take the children to the Christmas light displays on 34th Street in Baltimore.

The children loaded into the limo and first stopped at the holiday train garden located at a fire station in Dundalk. From there they moved to the lit up 34th Street in Baltimore. The children walked through the Christmas displays and even got to go into some of the houses.

At the end of the night, the children were all given gif bags, and plenty of candy.

BGE Volunteers Work On Transitional House

November 25, 2009

Volunteers from Baltimore Gas & Electric spent two days renovating the Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County’s transitional house located in eastern Baltimore County.

The BGE crew, which was made up of the workers who maintain the underground lines that run through our area, arrived at the house before 7AM to get started on the project.

The volunteers worked to give the transitional house a much needed facelift. New ceiling tiles were installed, wood floors that were previously under carpeting were sanded and exposed, walls were painted, the house was cleaned, and much more. The workers even did the house’s laundry.

Michael LeSavage, Director of the BGE Underground URD Construction & Maintenance Department leads the crew of volunteers on a daily basis. He stated that BGE likes to be involved in the community that they serve, and feel as though working with the Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County really makes a difference.

The transitional house at the Family Crisis Center provides a safe space where residents can plan for a future free from domestic violence. The transitional house also provides the opportunity for the residents to receive job training and career counseling, return to school, find employment, save money, and find safe, affordable housing.
