Help Baltimore’s Only Youth Drop-In Shelter Reopen

Show your support for Baltimore and help a vital community organization reopen its doors through ourBooster campaign.

As residents and representatives of Baltimore, the Charm City Roller Girls felt the impact of the city’s unrest in the wake of Freddie Gray’s tragic death. When violence erupted in the city, businesses and community centers were damaged, including the Youth Empowered Society’s Drop-In Center for homeless youth. We believe what makes Baltimore great is how we come together in the face of tragedy, and that’s why we’ve organized a fundraiser so you can show your love for the city and help this great organization re-open their doors. To help with this cause, please visit our Booster campaignand order one of the T-shirts we’ve designed in support of the city. You can also donate directly to the shelter through the link provided.

From the YES mission statement:

YES works to end youth homelessness in Baltimore by supporting formerly homeless youth to become leaders in our community and by providing urgently-needed direct services to homeless youth … YES’s vision is that all Baltimore youth will easily access the resources they need to achieve stable housing and become healthy, successful adults.

You can learn more about the center at The Baltimore Sun reported on the incident and the damage, which you can read about here.

Charm City skaters volunteered for the Patterson Park spring cleaning project in April because we’re always looking for ways to help our city be its best.


We are proud of the many ways we’ve seen this city come together to recover from the violence and we believe in the mission of YES to empower the young people of Baltimore. Please help support their causeby buying a t-shirt or donating directly to the drop-in center recovery effort.
