Help fight the violence, crime and drug abuse in Baltimore by supporting Aslan House, a recovery and transitional house for former inmates and addicts.
In light of the May 2015 Baltimore riots, a U.S. Soldier founded the not for profit "Aslan House" to try and help end the vicious cycle of reincarseration of many Baltimore men one of the main contributing factors for the riot.
Utilizing his 17+ years of military experience and 5 overseas tours fighting and countering insurgencies around the globe, Executive Director Bryan Beach has partnered with other faith-based programs, 12 step recovery programs and the support of the Baltimore City and County detention facilities administration to offer a mentorship and community based reintegration program for former inmates.
The program is highly indivdualized, and relies on the dedication and support of countless volunteers, mentors and teachers.
By reaching our goal, we can fully launch our proof of cencept which has been successfully impliment in countering insurgencies around the globe. Aslan House is already operational, and has more applicants than it can currently successfully manage. The need is great, and the task daunting, but the mission is not impossible.
Funding will fill the gap to maintain operations for one year and help graduate the first 16 men. These men in turn will be given the opportunity to run and manage their own Aslan Houses across the city. The 5 year plan is to have 20 houses assisting 100 former inmates a year integrate into society as law abiding, employable citizens.
With your help, we can turn this city around.
