Assistance Center of Towson Churches
Towson, MD 21204
Details: The ASSISTANCE CENTER OF TOWSON CHURCHES offers an ecumenical program that provides help to the poor and needy families in our community. It began as the result of a study conducted by the Towson Area Ministerial Association exploring an effective and efficient way to meet the needs of people coming to churches requesting help. Fourteen churches joined together to form ACTC. A consortium of 48 churches now participates in the outreach effort. The Assistance Center opened in 1985 to give emergency assistance, including food, eviction and utility cutoff prevention, payment for prescriptions and lunches for the homeless. Today a GBMC nurse practitioner helps with medical matters. Its service area incorporates 21 zip codes in central Baltimore County extending up to the Pennsylvania line. The center operates with a director, an assistant and a team of 60 trained volunteers, who interview each applicant to determine their specific needs, stock the food pantry and assist with special projects. Located at 120 W. Pennsylvania Avenue (between Baltimore and Washington Avenues on the alley behind Calvary Baptist Church) in Towson, the center is open Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 2:45 PM.
