New Vision House of Hope
While small in scope, the New Vision House of Hope renovation project at 2315 Chelsea Terrace will have a large-scale impact on the neighbor-centric, historic Baltimore community of Gwynn Oaks.
This corner property, one of the neighborhood’s grandest historic houses which was abandoned and fell into disrepair, will become a transitional group home for 12 men working toward independent living after battling substance abuse. Its location in a stable, walkable neighborhood and near the beauty of the Gwynn Falls Trail complements the supportive environment New Vision seeks to create. For 20 years, this organization has served low-income and underserved populations in Baltimore City, and this property further expands their program’s reach.
Episcopal Housing Corporation (EHC) is providing project management services, including securing funding, for the renovation which will return this signature property to its original grandeur and provide desired stability to the community. A full-gut renovation will provide residents with comfortable bedrooms, shared living space, and a kitchen, while administrative staff will enjoy new offices and meeting rooms. The renovation will provide the needed space for New Vision’s support services, such as GED prep, job training, counseling, and more.
With a target completion in summer 2024, the New Vision House of Hope transitional home will allow the organization to grow, touching even more individuals needing to rebuild their lives and positively contributing to a neighborhood that will benefit from a revitalized, historic property.
