BALTIMORE — Advocates gathered outside of Baltimore City Hall on Wednesday, asking about the city’s plans are for its homeless population as winter approaches.

They want to work with local and state officials to ensure that the city's homeless citizens are provided with warm, safe resources to survive the harsh winter.

"This city used to be called Charm City. We need to get back to the basics. I’m open to any suggestions that will help us as advocates eliminate the number of people that are living on the streets of Baltimore City," said Rodney Moore, the Executive Director of Beyond Housing Solutions.

After the press conference, advocates marched from City Hall to Saint Vincent De Paul Park. The park used to serve as a refuge for the city's hungry and homeless.
