Baltimore Outreach Services: A Shelter for Women and Their Children

Christ Church began their ministry to the homeless in 1987, originally providing warm blankets and a soup kitchen. In 2002 Baltimore Outreach Services, a non-profit corporation was formed to provide the administration and fund raising for our emergency shelter. The shelter houses 40 residents and provides case management services, educational groups, counseling for adults and children on site, after school homework help and culinary arts training programs for the residents.

Support the BOS Clothing Closet & Household needs. Often our shelter residents arrive with only the clothes they are wearing. To learn more about BOS click here.

Christ Church Prepares Shelter Dinner

Christ Church members have committed to preparing Sunday dinner for the residents of the Baltimore Outreach Shelter every 4th Sunday of the month. This commitment is a huge support to the BOS weekend staff as well as a way to having a meaningful impact on the lives of the women and children who reside in our shelter.

Shelter dinner relies heavily on volunteer assistance each month, from the donations of food items to the preparation of the meals. To learn more about how you can volunteer or donate to this ministry please contact the church office at 410-752-7179.

Sign up also takes place in the Coffee Hour room on the 3rd Sunday of the every month.

CLC Holiday Giveback

Every holiday season Christ Church members adopt BOS shelter residents and outreach program members (former BOS Residents) providing Thanksgiving baskets and Christmas presents. To learn more about donating to a family in need please contact the Social Ministry Coordinator.

World Hunger Appeal

Donations provide food and shelter to victims of natural disasters and prenatal care to women. Ways to end the cycle of poverty are focused upon teaching productive skills that enable people to take care of themselves and their families. Projects to provide water, irrigation to fields and basic sanitation are funded by the World Hunger Appeal. You can donate year round.
