About Streets of Hope:
The purpose of Churches for Streets of Hope is to mobilize Southeast Baltimore County to work together in Christ-centered mission for the relief of our area's poor, distressed, and underprivileged so that they can spark hope in our community.
To meet our mission, we operate a 16-bed men's homeless shelter, serving 30 to 50 guests per year. As churches work together to care for these men by helping them find employment, homes, and solid support networks, they are discovering more ways to fulfill our mission. The community-wide effort from over 30 member and partner churches and organizations of all backgrounds not only helps our homeless neighbors find solutions, but also connects them through one-on-one relationships with ordinary people in our neighborhoods.
Churches for Streets of Hope is an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).

Member and partner churches provide a hot meal each night, and collect donations from clothes to electronics to help the men we serve find their way out from homelessness.
