Our History

Project PLASE was founded by Frank Dearden, Miriam Wallace, Eric Bergerson, Gregory M. Hunter, and Mary C. Slicher to remedy the lack of housing and resources available to Baltimore’s homeless citizens. Originating as a Walk-In Center for those experieincing homelessness, PLASE opened its first housing facility in 1978. It now has two temporary housing facilities and is in the process of converting an old elementary school in Irvington, Baltimore into affordable housing for 90 homeless individuals.
