St. Mark’s has long supported Grassroots Crisis Center and Homeless Shelter, Howard County’s 24-hour general crisis hotline and walk-in counseling program, and is the first point of contact in the County for homeless services.  Grassroots operates a 33-bed emergency family shelter, and a 18-bed men’s shelter, and can house up to five families short-term in motel shelter.

On the 2nd Friday of every month, St. Mark’s provides a hot meal for 50 people. This can be a great personal, family or friend group activity and also good for teen service hours.  We hope that you will participate so that St. Mark’s can continue our Grassroots outreach tradition here in our local community. CLICK HERE to sign up to support with a meal.
