Help Homeless Neighbors during COVID-19

During COVID-19 many drop-in centers and places that had been centers for resource-sharing for people on the street are closed. Even many soup kitchens and pantries are not able to stay operational. Clothing closets, too, are closed. This impacts the homeless community tremendously.

We are raising money to benefit North Ave Mission, led by homeless and formerly homeless people, PeeWee, Nine Trillion, Sharonda, New York, Brenda, Kenny, Kitten, and Blackface, to supply resources to our street community which is extremely vulnerable right now. We are raising money to purchase, through Maryland Food Bank and as deliveries through online sellers allow,  gloves, sanitizer, masks, shelf-stable foods, protein bars, socks, underwear, and clothing to distribute to the community in our white outreach bags which also contain information on how to keep safe during COVID-19 and where to go if you're feeling sick. We will also purchase food cards from Save-A-Lot and Shoppers which remain open. As a community we purchase food together and share it.

North Ave Mission is a creative and strong, holy and humorous fellowship of people from differing yet intersecting social locations and backgrounds. We come together to hear and know that we are children of God. We are food and housing insecure people, people experiencing homelessness, people in recovery, people living with addiction, disability, and mental illness. In our ranks are artists, advocates, activists, mothers, fathers, and intercessors. We are community leaders who are formerly homeless and passionate about making conditions safe and healthy for people on the street. And we are people from around Baltimore and beyond who feel called to presence with our city’s most vulnerable neighbors- artists, activists, students and social workers, retirees and clergy. We are a community because we want to walk together as we advocate for justice, safe housing, care for each other, and seek a sacred space where we can bless each other and heal as a people. 

Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause! Your support will have a huge impact.
