Pull up to the Black Business Showcase and have a chat with us! We are tabling to share our mission at The Sinclair at 3425 Sinclair Lane. We're super excited to discuss some of the issues unique to Baltimore, and exactly how communities can get involved.

We always say Tiny Homes are an Affordable Solution to Homelessness and Vacant Lots in Baltimore. As an equitable housing nonprofit that's committed to providing a safe and secure place for people experiencing housing insecurity in Baltimore, we are replacing tents with micro-shelters built with the same materials as your home to provide a safe, secure and comfortable place to sleep. Baltimore currently has over 15,000 vacant lots, 3,000 who are unhoused every night and micro-shelters provide an innovative solution to the unsustainable tents we tend to see.

We believe that everyone deserves a safe, comfortable and secure place to sleep every night. Our insulated shelters provide a warm and secure environment, and our team of volunteers and professional partners provides all the necessary resources to ensure that our micro-shelters on wheels and stationary shelter panels are as comfortable and safe as possible. We are dedicated to providing a safe and secure place for unhoused folx of Baltimore.

If you would like to join us in our mission to provide a safe and secure place for people experiencing homelessness in Baltimore, please visit our donations page to learn more and donate.

Together, let's end homelessness.

"The Black Butterfly: The Harmful Politics of Race and Space In America" written by Dr. Lawrence Brown are the receipts we've been looking for to support our housing advocacy. The work of Smalltimore Homes is mentioned on pg 200 and pg 206. Buy the Book Here:

"The world gasped in April 2015 as Baltimore erupted and Black Lives Matter activists, incensed by Freddie Gray's brutal death in police custody, shut down highways and marched on city streets. In The Black Butterfly—a reference to the fact that Baltimore's majority-Black population spreads out on both sides of the coveted strip of real estate running down the center of the city like a butterfly's wings—Lawrence T. Brown reveals that ongoing historical trauma caused by a combination of policies, practices, systems, and budgets is at the root of uprisings and crises in hyper-segregated cities around the country.

Putting Baltimore under a microscope, Brown looks closely at the causes of segregation, many of which exist in current legislation and regulatory policy despite the common belief that overtly racist policies are a thing of the past. Drawing on social science research, policy analysis, and archival materials, Brown reveals the long history of racial segregation's impact on health, from bode pollution to police brutality. Beginning with an analysis of the current political moment, Brown delves into how Baltimore's history influenced actions in sister cities like St. Louis and Cleveland, as well as its adoption of increasingly oppressive techniques from cities like Chicago.

But there is reason to hope. Throughout the book, Brown offers a clear five-step plan for activists, nonprofits, and public officials to achieve racial equity. Not content to simply describe and decry urban problems, Brown offers up a wide range of innovative solutions to help heal and restore redlined Black neighborhoods, including municipal reparations. Persuasively arguing that, since urban apartheid was intentionally erected, it can be intentionally dismantled, The Black Butterfly demonstrates that America cannot reflect that Black lives matter until we see how Black neighborhoods matter."
