Visit Baltimore convened its Annual Meeting (Baltimore: The Big Picture) earlier this month on October 3, 2017. As part of that program, the Foundation had the privelege to take to the podium to thank our supporters - and recognize some important people.
Those included three of the five members of our third annual class of Academic Scholarship recipients: Naomi Davidoff, Master candidate at Goucher College; Ben Hyman, MBA candidate at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School; and Donice Sneed, BA candidate at Morgan State University. Along with two other Baltimore area students, and an individual high school award, we are pleased to be providing $13,000 in scholarship support this fall.
- Helping Up Mission – $2,000 – Education & Workforce Development Services
Visit Baltimore Foundation's grant will support HUM's annual Pre-Placement, Placement and Post-Placement Case Management and Wraparound services for men served by the facility with a specific focus on education and workforce development services in the hospitality and tourism fields. For the grant period, they are anticipating to provide: 15 residents with floor technician training; 300 residents with work therapy in the Kitchen and Cafeteria; 5 residents receiving ServSafe training and certification; and, 45 residents training in commercial laundry facilities. The ultimate goal is to increase self-sufficiency and place hundreds of men in employment in Baltimore's hotels, restaurants and entertainment venues.
