Deconstruction versus demolition:

...reuse and green jobs in the sustainable city

img 0700Today I had the opportunity to visit an exciting project a partner is working on. That partner, Humanim, is an NGO dedicated to workforce development and social enterprise. Their DETAILS program provides job training and employment for people in the local community with barriers to employment. They deconstruct vacant buildings and process the materials for resale and reuse. This diverts these waste streams from landfills (and avoids them being buried onsite) and converts these materials from a waste to a resource.

DETAILS is presently under contract with Baltimore City to deconstruct a block of row homes on Eager Street.

Race For Our Kids

asaphoto-1Together we FINISH

Humanim’s partnership with Athletes Serving Athletes came to fruition on a cool September morning on Preakness Way near Baltimore.

Several of our consumers have been training hard in advance of the Race For Our Kids 2014. They did all of us proud this past Sunday morning (9/21), finishing the race in grand style as their families, Humanim staff, and ASA volunteers celebrated their big successes with loud cheers and signs made by their peers at the Gerwig Day Program.

The 2014 Race For Our Kids was a fantastic experience for all involved, but it’s just the beginning. Humanim and Athletes Serving Athletes will continue to work together to help our consumers experience fuller participation in athletic events and savor the joy of accomplishing something they many—including themselves—might once have considered impossible.

Our next 5K race will be October 25th in Hunt Valley supporting Athletes Serving Athletes….Come Join Us!!!

Humanim Health Homes program receives CARF Supplemental Accreditation

First provider in Maryland to be recognized by CARF

CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitations Facilities, was at Humanim this week to conduct a supplemental survey of our (new) Health Homes Program—a program that integrates primary healthcare with behavioral healthcare. CARF concluded the survey with no recommendations or consultations. Humanim's participation is one, of just two agencies, accredited by CARF in Maryland.

The surveyor commented that “this is a wonderful program and that the professional staff are a testament to why the program is so successful.” Most importantly, the clients that were interviewed were able to clearly show what a positive impact this program is having on their lives – and at the end of the day, that is what it is all about.
