The 88,000SF, 396 bed shelter is includes a daytime services center with a mail room, computer lab, barbershop, and laundry facility, plus a dining center that will offer culinary training opportunities.

Taking advantage of sunny skies, warm temps and 8-10 knots of wind, the Wiencek team enjoyed a full day of sailing on the Chesapeake Bay to recharge after an unprecedented year of working remotely. Aboard the Woodwind Schooner with Captain Andy and his crew, we sailed out of Annapolis towards the historic Thomas Point Lighthouse then turned north and sailed under the Bay Bridge towards the Sandy Point Lighthouse and finally towards the Baltimore Harbor Lighthouse before returning to Annapolis. Was a perfect day of sailing and team bonding, as evident by all the smiling faces of our team.
