Governor Larry Hogan Addresses Helping Up Mission Graduation
State Provides $500,000 for Expansion of Women’s and Children’s Center
ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today attended and spoke at Helping Up Mission’s annual graduation ceremony, held at Martin’s West in Baltimore. Helping Up Mission, known as HUM, provides comprehensive faith-based recovery services for men experiencing homelessness, poverty, and addiction. The governor congratulated the more than 120 men who completed the year-long spiritual recovery program.
“The spiritual recovery program graduates here today are proof that, even in the midst of our darkest days, there is always hope,” said Governor Hogan. “I want to wish all of today’s graduates good luck as they begin this next bright chapter in their lives, and I want to sincerely thank the Helping Up Mission team for the life-saving work that they do every single day.”
The Hogan administration has provided $500,000 in the Fiscal Year 2019 budget for HUM’s expansion to provide services for women and children. This funding will also support meals, shelter facilities, clothing, and thousands of personal counseling sessions provided by the organization’s Baltimore headquarters every year.
