Mission Statement

The House of Ruth Maryland Leads the Fight to end violence against women and their children by confronting attitude, behaviors, and systems that perpetuate it, and by providing victims with the services they need to rebuild their lives safely and free of fear. Our vision is that one day, every woman in Maryland will be safe in her won home.

Description

The House of Ruth Maryland was founded in May of 1977 by a coalition of women's organizations, religious groups, service providers, and elected officials to provide a safeohaven for victims of domestic violence and their children. In November of 1977, we opened Baltimore's first crisis shelter for these victims in a row house on North Calvert Street. Today the House of Ruth Maryland is recognized as one of the nation's most comprehensive domestic violence center and has a staff of more than ninety.
