Habitat rehabbed 11 houses on this block. These are some of the dozens of houses Chesapeake Habitat has built in and adjacent to the McElderry Park neighborhood, just east of the sprawling and ever-expanding Johns Hopkins medical campus. Habitat has also managed street cleanups and other activities, sometimes bringing hundreds of volunteers at a time. Collins says Habitat has improved things immensely. Since she has lived in the neighborhood, from 1981 on, she says, "it was drugs everywhere. Habitat cleaned it up, but when they were choosing the people, somehow they got the trashy people."
