Another Renovation From Partner Charm City Builders

The grants are funded by the State of Maryland Baltimore Regional Neighborhood Initiative. Yes, the new bright awning, door decal and lighter window tinting are all part of this façade upgrade, but there was so much reward beyond the front door – meeting and working with (the wonderful) [...]
