House of Ruth Maryland’s
Community Engagement Center
Building more shelters for victims will never be a permanent solution to intimate partner violence. We must open our doors, invite the community into our House, and stimulate discussions that increase community engagement, dispel myths, and confront attitudes.
We cannot do this in our victim service locations because shelter and counseling sites are confidential and access by the public is limited.

accessible and highly visible in Baltimore City.
A place where we can work, hand-in-hand, with the community.
How We Help
Tearing away at the walls of secrecy through outreach, education and training.
We ensure that victims in danger receive services and shelter immediately. We also work with abusers to change their behavior.
Changing attitudes and beliefs of intimate partner violence through legislative and social change.
