Providing Community Outreach
Sarah's House is a supportive housing program offering emergency and transitional housing with an array of other services for homeless families in Anne Arundel County. Like many Catholic Charities programs, the Archbishop's Annual Appeal helps with funding program needs.
The Archbishop's Annual Appeal helps to fund programs in Baltimore City such as Safe Streets.
"The Safe Streets program is located at St. Peter Claver Church onf North Fremont Ave. Staff members include a program site director, violence prevention coordinator, and four outreach workers. After the unrest in April, 2015, I took time to reflect, listen, and pray, and my colleagues did the same. We concluded that in order to bring about sustainable change in our community and in people's lives, we needed to take a positive role in reducing the epidemic violence and trauma that is plaguing many Baltimore neighborhoods. We believe Safe Streets is one way to help address this crisis."
