Couple leases two separate units at Symphony Center Apartments in Baltimore

 Retired couple Benjamin and Mary Beth Glover have lived in virtually every corner of the United States until deciding several years ago to construct a retirement home in a suburb of San Antonio. An unfortunate downturn in the Texas residential housing market, which caused tremendous financial stress, forced them to scrap these plans and re-focus on options available in the Baltimore market. The Glover’s are now part of a growing “renters by choice” movement which provides them with the flexibility, available capital and preferred home style to meet their lifestyle. Read More →

Why You Want to Donate Your Suit This Season

0 Written by: | Wednesday, Dec 02, 2015 1:30pm


Sharp Dressed Man provides well-tailored, gently worn business attire to men who’ve been recently released from prison, and who are reentering the workforce. Sure, many people coming out of prison face much greater obstacles than the question of what to wear to a potential job interview—but at the same time, being able to look the part can have a tremendous impact on how potential employers or landlords view someone, as well as how he views himself. Of course, Sharp Dressed man depends on the donations of folks who have a little extra—so if you’ve just gotten a pair of new dress shoes and think you could part with your old ones—this is the best possible place to send them. There certainly is plenty of need, and a whole lot of gratitude. Click to read more of the original post.
