Baltimore City Water Rate Increase:
Flushing your money down the drain?
The St. Ambrose Legal Services Department has years of experience advocating for Batlimore City residents as they navigate the inconsistent water bill hearing process.
With the upcoming increase in water bills and new rate structure, St. Ambrose Senior Legal Clerk, Charlotte Clarke, advocates for reforms that bring improved accuracy in billing, a meaningful appeals process to contest erroneous billing, and clarity as to how the rate increases will help achieve these ends. As Clarke mentions in her post, though rate increases are sometimes necessary, "the families who bear the burden of these increases deserve transparency and results." Read  the full story on the blog. 
Homeowner Spotlight:
David Blenman

David Blenman, a paramedic firefighter in Baltimore County, purchased a St. Ambrose home in the Glenham-Belford neighborhood in Northeast Baltimore at the end of last year. We stopped by his home last week to see how he was settling in and making the house his home. Visit the blog to take a peak inside his beautiful home and learn about his journey as a new homeowner. 
The mission of St. Ambrose Housing Aid Center is to create, preserve and maintain equal housing opportunities for low and moderate income people, primarily in Baltimore City, and to encourage and support strong and diverse neighborhoods.
