The county's first transitional housing program for homeless men will celebrate its grand opening Sunday, but its doors will remain closed to the men waiting to move there. A water-sprinkler problem is delaying the operation of the Fouse Center in Glen Burnie, which will provide shelter, job and substance-abuse counseling and help for its residents in finding permanent homes. Eight people are waiting to move into the five-bedroom house, said the Fouse Center's director, Mario Berninzoni.

County gets grant to aid homeless Anne Arundel County has received a $1.6 million federal grant to maintain and expand its services to the homeless. "This will pay for transitional housing and supportive service programs provided by Arundel House of Hope, Associated Catholic Charities, Annapolis Area Ministries and Community Residences, as well as provide rental assistance to our most vulnerable citizens," County Executive John R. Leopold said in a written statement. The majority of the award will continue to fund tenant-based rental assistance programs operated by the Housing Commission of Anne Arundel County and the county's Mental Health Agency.

It is still under construction. There's no water, no heat; the walls and floors aren't finished. But yesterday, Anne Arundel County's first transitional housing center for homeless men was blessed. At least 10 clergymen led the prayers, joined by several dozen community members and representatives of two dozen area churches involved in the Fouse Center project. The center will open next month on Orchard Road in Glen Burnie, behind a commercial building near the state Motor Vehicle Administration - a place where the ecumenical group hopes homeless men will find help and a new direction in life.

For about 500 homeless people each year, Arundel House of Hope in Glen Burnie has provided temporary housing, case management and, until now, one shared phone number. Without telephone numbers to include on job applications, gaining employment can prove difficult. And without a job, finding a permanent home seems impossible. "If they get a call from an employer, the phone is answered, `Arundel House of Hope,'" said director of development Mary Alexander. "That opens up a whole bag of worms."

As a volunteer at the Arundel House of Hope, Phil Bailey doesn't get paid for his services — for doing dishes, doing laundry or performing any of his other duties. After 20 years of working at the facility that provides shelter, health care, food, case management and more to the homeless, Bailey was finally recognized for making a difference in the lives of the people he serves. The Ravens honored Bailey as a "community quarterback" during a ceremony at M&T Bank Stadium before the team's game against the Oakland Raiders on Nov. 11. He was among three finalists who were thanked for outstanding service to their respective communities.

A year ago, if you'd asked David Moore to generalize about homeless people, he'd have said most were probably addicted to drugs or alcohol, lacking in ambition and unworthy of the general public's trust. Then he became homeless himself. "I'll be honest with you, I wasn't prepared for that to happen," said Moore, a 46-year-old Arnold native who lost his job and his apartment last fall, only to end up living in his car. He might have lost his hope as well, he said, had he not heard about Winter Relief, a program sponsored by the Arundel House of Hope in Glen Burnie that offers a select group of more than 90 homeless people a warm place to sleep every night through the winter months.

Tucked behind trees off a street in Glen Burnie are about a dozen mostly makeshift tents and a small trailer, forming a small community of homeless people who have been there off and on for several years. Now, Anne Arundel County has ordered the homeless to leave the site by April 3 — the second time in about a year there's been a push to clear the site. County agencies and nonprofit organizations — the Department of Social Services and the nonprofit Arundel House of Hope among them — are trying to connect the homeless people there with shelters and other services.
