Our Outreach Programs exist to build consistency and relationships with individuals in our city. Our hope is to be a friend, to help meet any tangible needs, and to provide easy access to our residential programs if their situation requires long-term assistance.
When we serve a neighborhood through Adopt-A-Block, we strive to love the people who live there with all that we have. Some ways we do that are through beautification, a Dream Kids program, food and clothing distribution, and praying with people. We believe that by consistently going to the same neighborhoods and pouring out love, relationships are made and true change and restoration can begin to take place in communities all across our city.
Our Dream Kids team has a heart to show the children of Baltimore the love of Jesus in a real and fun way. We throw big parties during our Adopt-A-Blocks with a moon bounce, face painting, snacks, puppetry, games, and a Bible lesson! On months with bad weather, we deliver care packages to the kids in the community. Through pop-up Dream Kids events, a BackPack Drive, day trips, and more, our Dream Kids team is bringing the light of Jesus to the next generation!
Food Pantry Deliveries
The purpose of this program is to provide tangible assistance to the individuals in the neighborhoods we serve through Adopt-A-Block who are having financial struggles. We deliver food to qualifying families on a regular basis. This program is intended to be a stepping stone to bring relief to families who have fallen on difficult times. This is also a wonderful way for us to follow up with families on a more regular basis than our Adopt-A-Blocks.
Our goal is to bring hope and love to women in the clubs in Baltimore. Through gift bags, prayer, and a 24/7 hotline, we are able to meet women where they are, and be a listening ear if they need it. Our prayer with our outreaches is to build relationships that can open up the door for us to bring assistance if desired. We also host documentary screenings and informational seminars to raise awareness about the realities of what is happening in our city.
The Village Resource Closet
Our Village Resource Closet exists to support local foster families, low income families, teen parents, and single parents because we know that it truly does take a village to raise a child. We started The Village Resource Closet because often times when foster parents get a call for a new placement, they do not have a lot of time to get the resources they may need. We know how tough the process can be and want to be a resource to help with physical, emotional, spiritual and financial needs. Our resource closet serves families with children from birth through middle school.
