Stephen Davidson

“What do you call a bear with no teeth? A gummy bear!” Expect a big smile and a joke like this one whenever you see Stephen Davidson. “I’ve got to learn a new way of living.

That’s the chief takeaway for those who attended Baltimore’s first ever Summer Solstice event to affirm the resilience and strength of people who’ve endured homelessness or are currently homeless. On June 21, advocates and people experiencing homelessness came together at the Ynot Lot in Baltimore for an afternoon of music, storytelling and fellowship.


In the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history at a gay nightclub in Orlando and the one-year anniversary of the shooting deaths of nine black churchgoers in Charleston, it has been a challenging week for many members of our community.

Saturday, June 11: Fifteen people will share their stories of homelessness at Stories That Matter, a monologue event hosted by Baltimore's Faces of Homelessness Speakers' Bureau.
