In light of the final stretch of construction for The Green House® Residences at Stadium Place, The Baltimore Sun recently posted an article highlighting the unique community partnership that has contributed to the success of the first Green House homes in Maryland. Govans Ecumenical Development Corporation (GEDCO) and Catholic Charities have created a strengths-based collaboration to achieve their shared vision to create better lives for Elders receiving skilled nursing care in Baltimore. In an interview with GEDCO Executive Director, Mitchell Posner, he explained the significance of each organization in the partnership:

“GEDCO operates its other housing complexes, including the Venable and Ednor apartment buildings at Stadium Place, on the site of the old Memorial Stadium. But, since the Green House will require skilled nursing care, GEDCO is handing the management reins over to Catholic Charities, which has experience in that part of the health care industry.”

The collaboration has amplified the community involvement in and commitment to the project, as the Stadium Place team has demonstrated the importance of all perspectives, resources, and experiences. Nate Sweeney, Green House Guide at Stadium Place, acknowledged that the homes will ensure that each elder “has a place at the table”. Similarly, GEDCO and Catholic Charities have modeled this value by bringing complementary strengths to table in preparation for the homes to open in April 2012.
