Meeting Ground

Meeting Ground grew from the concept of “shelter” to the reality of “home” for people experiencing homelessness.

Our mission is to help meet basic human needs and to address the root problems that perpetuate the cycle of homelessness and poverty.

North Elk Coffee House cancelled tonight

Due to the impending snow, the North Elk Coffee House’s Brooks Williams’ performance is cancelled tonight. Mark your calendar now for next month’s performer – Heather Pierson on Saturday, March 21st. Of course, if you want to still make a donation to Meeting Ground today, you can push the “Donate” button on our website and make a donation to help support our services!

Volunteer Needed for Food Pick-up

Meeting Ground has entered into a partnership with Wawa to receive food donations several times a week to help support our programs. We are looking for volunteers who would commit to once or twice a week to pick up these donations from the Elkton Road store and deliver them to the Mary Randall Center and Settlement House anytime between 8:00am and 1:00pm. This would require about an hour of your time for each pick-up. You can choose as many days a week to do this, but one day a week will also work. If you are interested, please contact Pat Marks at 410-620-3128.
