Gov. Hogan speaks at Helping up Mission Graduation; state provides $500k for expansion
Helping Up Mission provides faith based recovery services for men experiencing homelessness, poverty and addiction. The governor congratulated the more than 120 men who finished the year long spiritual recovery program. Governor Hogan said, "The spiritual recovery program graduates here today are proof that, even in the midst of our darkest days, there is always hope.
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 reportedly provided $500,000 in the Fiscal Year 2019 budget for H.U.M.'S expansion to provide services for women and children.
The money will support meals, shelter facilities, clothing and thousands of personal counseling sessions that the organization's Baltimore headquarters provide annually.
