Mission Statement

To protect and provide a safe haven for women and their children and to meet their immediate survival needs. To help battered women and their children escape battering situations permanently. To prevent domestic violence from occurring and to facilitate rapid and effective intervention when it does. To change society's attitudes so domestic violence is not tolerated.

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.
