Old Bricks get a New Image

Bricks will be uniquely painted by members of community

IMG 2277The developer, Section 1, has begun work on a new art-park in Station North. This new park is expected to be the largest in the area and will feature a safe and clean environment for fostering new avenues of strategic change and maximizing urban design.

One feature of the park will be bricks that have been uniquely painted by individuals from throughout the community.

This site will be developed inclusively through community initiatives intended to leverage from the creative potential already present. Section 1 states, that in doing so, we will better understand the needs of our users and encourage ownership of the park for urban art making, recreation, and development of initiatives to address environmental concerns.

Details, a social enterprise of Humanim, contributed 1,800 bricks to assist Section 1 launch this project. The source of these bricks makes the donation far more valuable than just their monetary worth. These bricks were harvested from a Maryland home scheduled for demolition. The deconstruction of these homes created new jobs for Baltimore residents while improving the safety and beauty of the community. This creative reuse of the materials also means less waste be placed in landfills.

Together, Section 1 and Details are paving a better future for Baltimore City residents.

Humanim's Day Service Program in Howard County has partnered with Athletes Serving Athletes (ASA), a non-profit organization that offers innovative athletic training, supportive mentor relationships, and mainstream athletic events for athletes living with disabilities. Once a week, two ASA volunteers run with both staff and consumers, getting us all ready to run our first 5k race sometime in the fall.

The excitement in the athletes face is worth every aching muscle!

Humanim Health Homes program receives CARF Supplemental Accreditation

First provider in Maryland to be recognized by CARF

CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitations Facilities, was at Humanim this week to conduct a supplemental survey of our (new) Health Homes Program—a program that integrates primary healthcare with behavioral healthcare. CARF concluded the survey with no recommendations or consultations. Humanim's participation is one, of just two agencies, accredited by CARF in Maryland.

The surveyor commented that “this is a wonderful program and that the professional staff are a testament to why the program is so successful.” Most importantly, the clients that were interviewed were able to clearly show what a positive impact this program is having on their lives – and at the end of the day, that is what it is all about.
