The Double Housing Crisis
In the May Abell report, Phillip Garboden makes a case for a "Double Crisis" in Baltimore's affordable rental market. The first crisis is driven by the city's poverty, the second, by sharply rising rents in all middle market neighborhoods.  Read the report here

St. Ambrose is hosting a discussion on Garboden's findings on September 8th at the Hopkins Club.

The "Movie Shed" in Belair-Edison got a new look this summer thanks to the NeighborWorks Catalytic Grant. Mural by Sean James and Paige Orpin. 


In this newsletter we celebrate a summertime that has been chock-full of neighborhood events such as National Night Out in Calvert Street Park and Lakia and Sa'Nyia's annual back-to-school drive. 
St. Ambrose in the Community
National Night Out in Calvert Street Park
Getting together with Old Goucher and Barclay neighborhoods at National Night Out is always a highlight of the St. Ambrose Summer. Thanks to ezStorage, St. Ambrose was able to bring back the "Paint Your Neighborhood" activity. 
According to the kids in our community, there should be more pink houses!
