My Brother's Keeper Services
 

Workforce Assistance

My Brother’s Keeper believes that no social service beats a job with benefits. Connecting local residents with employment opportunities is a priority for us.

To that end, My Brother’s Keeper has enlisted an AmeriCorps Public Ally on a 10-month rotation. He is tasked with researching, designing, developing and implementing the MBK workforce development program. Rather than creating a startup job service, our focus is on linking 14 to 29-year-olds to established programs … tailored to each individual’s needs.


Health Clinic

My Brother’s Keeper is equipped with a health unit, stocked with supplies for the minor medical needs of our guests. Yet we wish it to be used for so much more, so we pursue our plans to get the qualified staff and insurance we need to make it a fully functioning clinic.

Until then, we do what we can to relieve the suffering of those that come to us in need by connecting them with local health facilities and hospitals. Your pledge of support can help us expand our health services offered through our clinic.
 

   

Meal Service

Hunger hurts both the individual and society.  It drains productive energy, and it drives its victims to desperate actions to get by. 

At My Brother’s Keeper, where a warm, nutritious meal is just a walk away, our guests have one less challenge to face each day – what’s there to eat?

Our kitchen manager, Gordon Crockett, works wonders with whatever food is given for our hot meal program.  With prepared meats or vegetables donated from St. Agnes Hospital’s kitchen, breads and desserts from area supermarkets, or with any food donation from any source, Gordon and his helpers are able to serve some of the most varied and tasty meals available from any Baltimore charity.

After a prayer of thanks, cold drinks are passed around and meals are served in our inviting dining room by cheerful volunteers.   Mealtime is a peaceful gathering in a secure environment, where all are welcome.
Supplementing our hot meal service is our bag lunch program, provided by our friends at St. Joseph’s Monastery and other sources.   This gives our guests their daily bread… to go… and more options for feeding their families.

To provide our guests with groceries for the week, My Brother’s Keeper joins with Beechfield United Methodist church in running a food voucher program.  Sometimes the food comes from our food pantry.  Mostly, we help acquire food from the Maryland Food Bank, where we are able to buy food at a fraction of its retail value.  In this way, your $10 donation to My Brother’s Keeper is able to buy $50 worth of food.

At the holidays, we help serve special meals that unite and bond the community.   For example, we team with St. Joseph Monastery Parish as they host the guests of Irvington with a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner.

We serve 6 meals per week Sept-May, and 5 meals per week June-August, averaging up to 70 plates per meal, which works out to over 18,000 meals per year, not including the bagged lunches.

With this assortment of meal programs, My Brother’s Keeper provides genuine food security for the residents of Irvington.

At My Brother’s Keeper, we are regular witnesses to the miracle of the loaves and fishes.  We give thanks to God for what we are given, and with faith in God’s providence we offer it to others.
