Adopt a Resident

Each year during the holidays the residents complete a wish list of items they need/would like to receive. For many of the men this is the first time in years that they have received a gift.  A wish list of desired items is provided in November; you may then purchase items from the list.  We request you wrap and drop off the items mid-December.

Share a Meal

We hold a weekly group meeting on Thursday evenings and would love to have you join us.  Bring a dinner or desserts to share with us and spend the evening learning about homelessness and the men who are calling Earl’s Place home.  Contact us at 410-522-0225 to schedule a time to visit.
