The domestic violence service provider House of Ruth Maryland has acquired a new building in Baltimore to boost its presence in the community and add more programs.
The building, at 2521 North Charles Street, will be the group's second in the city. It and the services housed there will be funded through a capital campaign that is just beginning and co-chaired by Joe LaRocque of Legg Mason and Jeff Musgrove of DST Technology.
The two-story, brick building in Charles Village offers about 16,000 square feet of office space and 31 parking spaces, according to the Loopnet commercial property database. It was built in 1960.
Officials expect the new offices to house its Training Institute, which offers instruction for service professionals, businesses, community groups and others; the Gateway Project, a program for abusers to learn how to maintain healthy relationships; and a place to accept donation for the group's thrift shop.
Terms of the purchase were not disclosed.
