Working Mom Moves Her Boys out of the Shadow of the City Jail

For seven years, Andrea Preston lived with her family in East Baltimore’s Latrobe Homes public housing complex, literally in the shadow of the state penitentiary and Baltimore City Jail. Preston, who works as a shift supervisor, says she wanted better housing, but also a
safer neighborhood for her two boys, now ages 6 and 11.
"I didn’t want to stay in public housing forever," she says. Through the Baltimore Housing Mobility Program, Preston moved her family to Hampden, a former industrial area of north Baltimore that is being reborn as a trendy neighborhood with art galleries, shops and restaurants.
She plans to stay.
"I like the area and my boys are happier now," she says. "I believe everyone deserves a chance at a better living environment."
