2018 Annual Report - Page 4



PROGRAM ACTIVITIES
The Baltimore Station provides a highly structured, therapeutic
environment to learn a new way of thinking and living. We focus
on building life skills and providing the necessary tools to facilitate
a better understanding of self, which enable our men to take
responsibility for their lives. Our licensed and certified program staff
facilitate therapeutic groups that cover:








Relapse prevention
Psychoeducation
Grief counseling
Daily reflection
Self esteem
Parenting
Anger management
Post-traumatic stress disorder
Family reunification
The Baltimore Station recognizes that each individual’s journey does
not look the same, which is why we develop different approaches to
assist residents in managing their time in the program, developing
new pro-social skills and hobbies, and maintaining a commitment
to self-determined goals. This is done, in part, through innovative
therapeutic programming. Residents participate in:

Workforce development
Therapeutic recreation
Running with Back on my Feet
Cooking class
Diabetes education
Tutoring
Tai chi

Mindfulness
Drumming circle
Art class
Drama class
Legacy letter writing
Baltimore Blast soccer
activities
Active engagement in self-improvement includes participating in
new and diverse experiences that have transferable skills which
replace negative behaviors with positive experiences. Activities such
as overnight camping trips, fishing on the Chesapeake Bay, musical
and theatre performances, and day trips to museums and historical
landmarks help residents to regain joy and meaning in their lives.
Residents also have the opportunity to attend professional sports
games such as the Baltimore Orioles and Ravens and participate in
veteran appreciation events.

For a third year, our formal dinner series provided a monthly occasion for
residents to be outfitted by Sharp Dressed Man and enjoy a three-course
dinner served by local restaurants, chefs, staff, and board of directors.
“Overall, I think the program is one of the very best - provides wholesome care, different services, to fit the
many different people The Baltimore Station serves.” Resident of The Baltimore Station
