Baltimore City Overdose Alert - A spike in overdoses was detected on Wednesday, May 23 in Southwest Baltimore. Such spikes are often related to tainted or particularly potent heroin (including heroin laced with fentanyl). Please share this information and encourage family, friends and neighbors to get trained to administer the overdose-reversing medication, Naloxone.
"From a public heath standpoint, health is integral to being empowered. I wanted to get involved, not just to serve, but to learn from them. Volunteering here is a two-way street. It's not just me giving my time; I've learned about the systemic issues of homelessness in Baltimore."
—Aamna Kabani, student at Johns Hopkins University
The big bright mural on the side of our clinic at 421 Fallsway caught Caitlin’s eye. And when her classes at Loyola University prompted her to look for a non-profit to volunteer with, she knew exactly where she wanted to go. Caitlin now serves as a help desk volunteer at Health Care for the Homeless and describes her experience here as "enlightening."
“Volunteering at Health Care for the Homeless was an experience I have never been exposed to; I was able to learn about different resources in the city which helped me better connect people with what they need.”
—Sangyub Lee, public health major at Johns Hopkins University
