Maryland summers are hot and getting hotter. But you’ll experience the heat differently depending on whether you have housing and where you live.
Factors like discriminatory housing, less tree cover, and a lack of central air mean that temperatures in West and East Baltimore are up to 15 degrees hotter on average than in wealthier parts of the city. People experiencing homelessness are especially at risk of dehydration, heat exhaustion, and worsening existing health problems.
Beyond meeting immediate safety needs in extreme heat, explore the broader, structural issues that have led to environmental injustice in Baltimore in our Community of Practice on Homelessness conversation about race and the built environment.

We danced, cheered and enjoyed a festive race village complete with coffee, donuts, tie-dye, a bounce house and easy ways to engage with community partners.
