Helping Up Mission
Founded in 1885, Helping Up Mission (HUM) has developed deep roots among the inner city’s poor and homeless, helping countless individuals overcome poverty, homelessness, and addiction. HUM’s overarching goal is to provide all the tools necessary to help men recover from addiction and become productive members of society. HUM has found through years of experience that men experiencing long-term drug and alcohol addiction can get well with the right type of help: Meeting each man’s individual needs under one roof in a supportive, long-term residential community while also providing educational/vocational programs and job placement assistance. A Vietnam veteran, John had seemingly done everything right. After finishing his tours in-country as a Green Beret A-team Medic, he was talented enough to work as a computer technician and also received his nursing degree, working 12 years at a medical center in Albuquerque. As he ended his tenure at the hospital supervising the Emergency Room, regrettably, his marriage came apart. Moving back to Baltimore, he found a nursing position at a local hospital. Unfortunately, John's downward spiral toward alcoholism began. John would walk by Helping Up Mission and would see men in its Spiritual Recovery Program looking healthy and happy, like their lives were really going somewhere. He decided to give HUM a try. He is now a Spiritual Recovery Program graduate, reconnected with his son and working hard on rebuilding his life with tools he learned at Helping Up Mission. Visit Helping Up Mission's Website.
