Danko Arlington was recognized as Catholic Charities’ Christopher Place 2006 Employer of the Year at an awards breakfast held at Baltimore’s Reginald Lewis Museum of African American History on December 1st, 2006.
Located in downtown Baltimore, Christopher Place provides housing and support for homeless men and ex-offenders who are ready to re-enter society. One of the most important goals in Christopher Place is to find secure and supportive employment for its residents before graduation.
Danko Arlington’s expanding business has provided skilled jobs and stable work for many of Christopher Place residents. The company’s special compassion has provided a nurturing environment for the residents to become productive, gain new skills, and renew their confidence.
At the breakfast, Danko Arlington’s President, John Danko, shared with the crowd that the company follows the age-old Christian teaching that “to those to whom much is given, much is expected.” He concluded that his organization not only builds castings, but “builds the kingdom of heaven” by working with faith-based organizations such as Catholic Charities.
