More than 100 families are being forced out of the Gilmor Homes in May.

The Housing Authority of Baltimore City says tearing down the buildings will take the neighborhood safer by making it hard to hide illegal activity, but some critics are worried about gentrification.

The Housing Authority will pay the relocation expenses for all the families and they’re helping them secure new places to live.
