Getting to GHCC During Charles Street Construction
Construction has begun once again in front of our building, and access has changed… again.
GHCC main offices are located at 3503 North Charles Street. The Adult Learning Center is located next door at the University Baptist Church, 3501 North Charles Street. Our buildings are just east of the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus, at the intersection of Charles Street and Greenway.
To get to us, use the directions located here.
* Vehicles and foot traffic may access Charles Street at the end of Greenway – just stay to the left of the ‘Road Closed’ sign and turn right after about 30 feet onto Charles Street.

Community Workforce Director featured in Al Jazeera
GHCC Community Workforce Director, Chris Wilson, was recently interviewed by Al Jazeera about his life story and why he does the work he does. Below is an excerpt:

Because he has fared better than others, Wilson is determined to help formerly incarcerated men have an opportunity to build the life he once constructed out of old magazine pages, photographs and Scotch tape.
“I understand what it’s like to want a second chance. I wouldn’t be here today if people didn’t give me one,” he says. “And to be able to give it [back] is a good feeling.” Click here to read the full article.
