From Helping Up Mission
We raise up broken men, and Greater Baltimore with them.
At Helping Up Mission, we believe God’s love can set men free — from drugs and alcohol, from poverty and homelessness, and from any other self-destructive behavior. However, it’s not enough to tell a man who has struggled with addiction for years that “Jesus loves you” and expect a miraculous recovery. Contrary to common thinking, addiction is not simply the result of poor personal choices, immorality, or weakness. It’s much more complex. Consequently, our approach to treatment is holistic in nature. Our Spiritual Recovery Program integrates the practical needs of our clients — food, clothing, shelter — with their clinical, mental health, medical, educational, and vocational needs. All of that is built upon a Gospel foundation. And by God’s grace, it can lead to lasting change.
Since 1885, Helping Up Mission has provided hope to people experiencing homelessness, poverty or addiction by meeting their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs.
