How St. Martin’s Ministries Serves Our Community

On November 14, 2015, in Public Service, by An American

Founded by the Benedictine Sisters of Ridgely, Maryland, the St. Martin’s ministries is now a non-denominational non-profit. Saint Martin’s delivers four programs to low income rural families in the mid-shore counties of Kent, Caroline, Queen Anne’s and Talbot. An emergency food pantry, a large thrift store, eviction prevention funds, and a two-year transitional residence for homeless women and children, Saint Martin’s House (SMH), make-up the four programs. The organization’s mission is to help impoverished people meet their basic needs while respecting and affirming their dignity. SMM serves between 350 and 450 people each month and has been operating from its location in Ridgely in Caroline County for more than 30 years.
