Thank You to Everyone who Joined Forces with our Board of Directors this March – Click here to read the full report from Meeting Ground’s Board of Directors matching gift campaign. The generosity of 35 individuals and congregations in our community raised $13,565, which means that with the 50% match from our Board of Directors we will reach our $20,000 goal. We couldn’t be more thankful for the support you offered to the homeless community in Elkton and beyond.
Who Is Meeting Ground?
Meeting Ground is a faith-based organization that has responded to the needs of homeless people in Maryland and Delaware since 1981. Individuals and families experiencing homelessness will find temporary ‘safe haven’ in our services. Using faith-based values, our guests can regroup and get their lives back in order with the help and support of a caring community.
Everyone in Cecil County, Maryland will have a place to call home.
We, the community of Meeting Ground, respect and serve persons at risk of, or experiencing homelessness by meeting basic human needs, connecting people to services, fostering spiritual and emotional well-being, and advocating for those whose voices need to be heard, with the goal of creating a path to a place they call home.
Join us in celebrating the successes of our client, Carrie! Carrie has been homeless for a year, but through hard work and with some help from Meeting Ground she obtained a job–starting at the new Amazon facility just recently–and has begun working towards her GED. Congratulations Carrie!
