Vehicle Donations Can Be Key To Fighting Poverty in Baltimore and Beyond

This article originally appeared in the June 2008 issue of BaptistLife, the official newsjournal of the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware.

Baptist Family is extremely thankful for the many different kinds of support we get from generous people across Maryland and Delaware. Often, that support takes the form of volunteer time or a monetary donation. For example, volunteers help sort, deliver, and distribute back to school items and Christmas gifts. Financial support allows us to provide for the material needs of families in deep crisis, to provide housing and other services, and it keeps our programs staffed.

A Message From the Executive Director

We often quote Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Paul makes this bold statement in the context of his thanks for the gift the Philippians had sent him.

New Transitional Housing Unit Opens in Baltimore

To better serve the homeless families of Central Maryland, Baptist Family has opened a second transitional housing unit. For many years, the agency has operated one very busy unit in Ellicott City.

Transitional housing is a way of keeping families safe and together during a severe housing crisis. Highly motivated families, referred to Baptist Family from churches or shelters, move into a stable and safe apartment or home for a period of up to two years.
