The Choice Program first opened its doors 28 years ago in Cherry Hill, a neighborhood of south-west Baltimore. Since then, we have expanded to seven offices, serving throughout Baltimore City, Baltimore County, and Prince George’s County. Cherry Hill is currently home to one Intensive Advocacy team focused on the southern part of the city, as well as two job-specific teams.
As a thank-you for the continued support over the years, the Choice Programs hosts Jam and Slam, an annual end-of-summer block party for the Cherry Hill community. This year’s event brought out over 200 residents for an afternoon of music, food, and fun! Check out our photos to see all of the activities that made the afternoon spectacular.
