Govans is a historic area in North Baltimore City. At the height of the mid-20th century, Govans was a thriving shopping district and destination for people from all over Baltimore. In the 1970s, 80s and 90s, Govans experienced a decline as did many parts of Baltimore City. The area was also particularly hard hit by the recent foreclosure crisis. Govans is home to diverse housing stock, numerous faith-based institutions and small, family-owned businesses. Rebuilding Together Baltimore is dedicated to helping long-time residents to stay in their homes and promoting a healthier, thriving community.

Sears Volunteers help 74-year-old veteran

Charles Faison is a 74 year-old United States Army veteran who has lived in his home for 50 years. A Baltimore native, Mr. Faison moved to Turner Station when he was 10. Many of his peers in Turner Station joined the military after high school, so he also decided to enlist in the army at the age of 19. He worked in ordinance repairing military equipment and as a cook, and in 1963 he was transferred from active duty to reserve. Because of his love for the military, he served in the reserves for 30 years and was ranked as sergeant first class at the time of his discharge. After leaving active duty, Mr. Faison found a job at General Motors where he worked for 40 years until he became sick.
