Based on the “Blessings in a Backpack” model, St. Peter’s has adopted Veterans Elementary School in Ellicott City and is supplying weekend food to children whose families are experiencing food insecurity. Each week, our folks assemble and deliver food to help our neighbors.
Leola Dorsey Day Resource Center
The Day Resource Center is a Grassroots mission that evolved in 2007 from an effort to learn more about the unsheltered homeless in Howard County to delivering food to them in brown bags. Today, through many organizational donations, they have grown into a new facility that offers housing, medical assistance, warm meals three days a week, and resources to help the homeless enter back into the working society.
First Monday Meals
On the first Monday of each month, St. Peter's members prepare and deliver a hot meal to the Day Resource Center. If you are interested in joining this ministry, fill out and submit the form below and our Outreach Team will be in contact with you.
Westside Men's Shelter
The shelter is a 100 bed facility for men located on the grounds of Spring Grove State Hospital in Catonsville, Maryland. Clients receive three meals a day, laundry service, personal hygiene items, clothing and other resources as needed. Their clients are inspired and encouraged to work toward their own self sufficiency with assistance from the staff, agency, and volunteer organizations dedicated to ending homelessness.
Our St. Peter's food pantry helps supply the needs at both the Day Resource Center and Westside Men's Shelter. St. Peter's sponsors "Green Bag Sundays" to gather food for those in need.
FIRN: Foreign-born Information & Referral Network
FIRN grew out of an informal support service for foreign-born students at Howard Community College. It is a place where immigrants could ask questions, "without feeling stupid." Slowly its services expanded to include immigration counseling, interpreting and other critical services. Today FIRN serves immigrants from over 75 countries as well as a key resource in Central Maryland for foreign born.
Adopt a Family for Christmas
St. Peter's has supported FIRN by adopting a family for Christmas to help provide presents for children and family members in need.
