Baltimore United Congregations is a interfaith coalition of clergy, laity and other individuals who meet regularly to unite in action toward the goal of providing religious communities with resources related to homelessness and other issues affecting our community.
The purpose of this coalition is to share information, identify issues that may require action, organize and support events that raise awareness of homelessness and other issues, the lack of resources available to the religious community and advocate for change.
“The churches have to feed the hungry,
clothe the naked, and shelter the homeless.
But they also have to remember that the answer
to homelessness is homes, not shelters.
What the poor and downtrodden need is not
piecemeal charity but wholesale justice.”
–William Sloane Coffin
