One Time or Recurring Donations to Support Our Ministry in Southeast Baltimore

Support for Highlandtown Neighbors on 300 S. Robinson

Multiple households on the 300 block of S. Robinson Street, near Bank Street, were significantly damaged by a quickly-spreading fire in the early evening of September 6th. The fire department response was very quick and effective. All residents and animals (to the extent of our knowledge) were unharmed. But most of the houses were judged unsafe for habitation, and the residents are displaced. The weeks and months ahead will be challenging for those neighbors as they assess their losses, deal with insurance, and try to put the pieces back together.

While material needs may arise in the coming days (and we promise to solicit for them as well)--by far the most useful support is in the form of cash assistance. All donations made will be passed along in their entirety to the impacted households. Please note that this is not meant to replace any individual appeals made by those neighbors! But is rather intended to be a convenient place for generous neighbors to support these households as a whole.

Donations to Support Our Efforts to Feed Neighborhood Families

We are providing groceries, produce, and meals to more than 150 local families, now once every month (on the fourth Saturday). Your donations help us purchase food from the Maryland Food Bank and from local sources to prepare meals and give out as groceries.

Donations to Support the Clinton Street Community Center: Refugee Resettlement

We have purchased two fire-damaged properties next to our church building so that we can support families and expand our community work--including adding two year old classrooms for The Highlandtown Preschool! Those new classrooms opened in April 2022. Now our attention has turned to renovating the second building, to be used to provide housing and support services to refugee families. We will welcome our first family in 2023. You can donate below.
