Second Chance Founder’s Repurposed, Reclaimed House


Driving down Russell Street on the way out of Baltimore, it’s hard to miss the giant orange warehouse sign: WHAT IS AND WHAT CAN BE. This is the unofficial mission statement for the non-profit Second Chance. Its official mission: Retrain, Reclaim and Renew. That is, to retrain people, many just out of prison, for full employment; to reclaim building materials and architectural salvage for use in renovation and new construction, and to renew usable materials to help eliminate waste in the environment.

Unique Home in Fells Point. Everything you want, nothing you don’t.



When I think of Fells Point, I think of my 20s, when my friends and I would barhop, go to the Fells Point Festival, and enjoy day drinking with a view. That was a long time ago, but Fells Point is still a destination for fine restaurants, shopping and nightlife – the question is, what would it be like to live there? How’s the parking? Will I be kept up all night by noisy pedestrians?
