The Children’s Home will present FACES 2013, a gala fundraiser featuring world-renowned smooth jazz artist, Maysa, Friday, Oct. 25, from 7 to 11 p.m., at the American Visionary Art Museum-Jim Rouse Visionary Center (800 Key Highway) in downtown Baltimore.
Up to 400 guests in cocktail attire are expected to gather for a gourmet dinner from Simply Elegant, fine wine, a special performance by Maysa, dancing to live music from band, Soul Centered; an interactive art activity, and live and silent auctions featuring unique artwork created by the at-risk children and youth living at The Children’s Home, along with other great items.

About The Children’s Home
Established in 1863 as an orphanage for children abandoned due to the Civil War, The Children's Home proudly celebrates a 150-year legacy of caring for Maryland’s at-risk children and youth both inside and outside the family structure. Its programs and services have continued to evolve to meet the needs of the community.
The Children’s Home is now recognized as one of Maryland’s premier providers of short- and long-term residential treatment care for Maryland youth, ages 13–21, who are victims of abuse, neglect, abandonment or family crisis and may be in need of structured and supervised care.
A 501 (c) 3 organization, The Children’s Home operates from its 44-acre campus in Catonsville and Treatment Foster Care office in Baltimore. With support from the community, the non-profit provides a comprehensive program of academic support, recreation, therapeutic counseling, arts and culture and life skills to give each child the opportunity to become a happy and productive citizen. Three of its most exciting program endeavors are weekly equestrian/pet therapies, entrepreneurial expressive arts and job placement assistance for older teens.
