Paul Martin has been named the first assistant clinical director in the history of The Baltimore Station, a residential treatment program supporting veterans and others transitioning from homelessness and addiction to self-sufficiency. The position was created to support the organization as it continues to expand its treatment programming and services.
Martin, who has been with the nonprofit for nearly 16 years, will be responsible for directing the day-to-day residential programming for the Sandtown/Winchester (Baker Street) and south Baltimore (West Street) locations.
He will oversee all case management, schedule all therapeutic activities, including group and life skill development, and will ensure consistency of treatment for all residents. Martin will provide oversight to ensure the programming is meeting all local, state, federal and VA regulatory standards and is aligned with the mission and vision of the organization.
While in school getting his masters’ degree at Coppin State University, Martin was a Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Scholar and president of the Student Rehabilitation Counseling Association.

What’s the most rewarding part about working at The Baltimore Station?
The most rewarding part of working at The Baltimore Station is being able to serve veterans of the U.S. military.
If you had not chosen nonprofit work as a profession, what profession would you choose and why?
If I hadn’t been a professional counselor I would have chosen to be a real estate developer. During my tenure of service, I’ve noticed there is a lack of affordable housing for Baltimore city’s homeless population.
I vacation on Maryland’s Eastern shore.
My favorite book is “Sounder,” by William H. Armstrong.
