Baltimore Habitat group renovates large majority (300!) of empty rowhouses in 15-block area

From Urbanite Baltimore writer  Anissa Elmerraji: "At a dedication ceremony last week attended by droves of supporters, friends, and volunteers, Inger Walker was handed the keys to her very first home.  While the day was understandably memorable for the first-time homeowner, it was equally special for the housing organization that made it all possible: Sandtown Habitat for Humanity.  Walker’s home marked the 300th completed since the organization set out on a mission twenty-two years ago to rehabilitate vacant rowhouses in the neighborhood (see 'Sandtown Green').  With three hundred homes now under its belt, Sandtown Habitat only has fifty to seventy-five more homes to complete before reaching its original goal of rehabilitating all the vacant homes within a fifteen-block area of the Sandtown community."  Full article here.  (Photo credit: Michael Barb.)
