It’s Official! The final construction beam was placed this morning during a special Topping Off celebration for our new House which is now ready to go under roof at 1 Aisquith Street in the Jonestown neighborhood of Baltimore.
Mayor Catherine Pugh and some of our biggest supporters and closest friends joined us for a heart-filled morning which included
beam signings, a beam raising with 563 dangling hearts representing the number of families turned away from the current House last year due to limited space, and an unforgettable countdown led by 8-year-old Ryder who has been a returning guest at the House with his family for several years.
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to Top Off the new House that Love Built and clear the way for construction to move to the interior as building plans for our new House stay on track. Check out the latest construction photos to see how we’re doing.
