He was 95 and had lived in Hamilton for many years.

The nonprofit St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore announced Monday that it would use a $1.5 million grant to expand it's rapid re-housing program to serve 195 homeless families over the next three years. The grant, which comes from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, will expend the Front Door Program to serve 65 families a year, up from 50. Families represent about a third of all homeless in Baltimore. The Front Door Program, which supports the city's 10-year plan to end homelessness, assists families in locating market-rate rental homes in communities where their children are in school and the family has existing support systems, according to the nonprofit.

In its eighth year, Empty Bowls has become not only a major fundraiser for one of Baltimore's oldest and busiest charities but a popular event for which people are willing to get in line early. Half an hour before doors opened Saturday at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, more than 200 ticket-holders waited eagerly for the first seating of soups from some of the region's best restaurants. "People who've been here before know to come early," said John Schiavone, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore, the host and beneficiary of an event that has grown so much since 2007 that organizers had to split it into lunch and dinner sessions.

Richard Bell hardly had time to look up during the first hour of ladling rich cream of crab soup into bowl after bowl at a fundraiser to benefit Baltimore residents struggling with homelessness, hunger and poverty. In that time, the general manager of Squire's Restaurant spooned out about half the 30 gallons of soup his restaurant donated to St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore's biggest fundraiser of the year. The nonprofit's event, "Empty Bowls," drew 2,000 guests for lunch and dinner seatings Saturday at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium.

When Toni Coleman walked into Career Connections in Baltimore's Park Heights a month ago, she saw the rows of computers and training classrooms she'd expected of a new employment center. But Coleman, who's struggled for about a year to find work, said she hadn't expected the personal attention that helped her not only polish an outdated resume and ferret out job possibilities but regain some confidence. A volunteer at the center, run by St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore, sat down with her over several days to rewrite her resume and point her to some promising leads.

After more than a week of hacking away at underbrush and weedy trees, landscape workers have tamed nearly 30 years of neglect at one of Baltimore's oldest Roman Catholic cemeteries. The 7-acre St. Vincent DePaul Cemetery, which is surrounded by Clifton Park, has emerged from its first clean-up since it officially closed in the 1980s. Workers cleared away tall grasses, unruly trees and nearly 5 tons of debris around four sections of askew grave markers and upturned headstones.

The Sun got it wrong in its editorial supporting the expansion of the Beans & Bread soup kitchen in Fells Point. Thirteen associations and groups representing the Greater Fells Point area don't find it to be "a welcome expansion." Everyone in the community can agree that Beans & Bread has outgrown its present location and needs to expand somewhere. But the proposed expansion at its present site would create a major institutional use in a residentially zoned area. The operator of Beans & Bread, Baltimore's St. Vincent de Paul Society, is asking for too much activity on too small of a lot. The soup kitchen, which was begun in 1977 as a storefront operation, now wants to spend $4.3 million to expand its present 16,900-square-foot facility into a 23,200-square-foot facility.

It was quite the picture of domesticity: Shirts are hung in a tidy row as if fresh from the laundry, while someone fastidiously sweeps the floor, frequently stopping to empty the dustpan in the garbage. The only problem is that the shirts were hanging not in a closet but on the fence of a park, and the wielder of the broom was basically sweeping dirt from dirt - the "floor" being a patch of ground worn almost bare of grass just outside St. Vincent de Paul Church in downtown Baltimore. The sweeping seemed pointless - but then, not much makes sense to me about this homeless encampment that has managed to take up permanent residence at the foot of the Jones Falls Expressway at Fayette Street.
