FLO host four annual events: FLO’s Annual Day of Helping, FLO’s Annual Pre-Mother’s Day Brunch, FLO’s Annual Baltimore Homeless and Community Resource Festival, and the Annual Winter Coat Drive and Wellness Fair. At these events, FLO provides homeless individuals, families in need, and veterans living in shelters with hot meals, clothes, toiletries/supplies, haircuts, vital services such as blood pressure, HIV screenings, dental services, criminal expungement, ID assistance, housing, information, and access to other resources such as employment preparation and other opportunities. These services are an important step towards the road to success and self-sufficiency.
Meeting and exceeding a great need through the provision of items and support increases confidence and feelings of a semblance of stability and could increase desires to become prepared for gaining job skills and/or job-seeking. FLO is committed to instilling hope and proactive about providing resources and services that restore confidence in individuals and families experiencing hardships and/or homelessness and supports them on their path to self-sufficiency in Baltimore City.
