The Cause

Over 4,000 people in the Baltimore area are without a home on any given night. St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore is the largest provider of shelter and housing services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness in the Baltimore region, providing prevention, diversion, shelter, rapid rehousing, and permanent housing solutions designed to end homelessness in our community. We provide a pathway out of homelessness by offering a wide range of critical resources and support and by placing individuals and families in stable housing.

Our programs employ best practices and have demonstrated success in not only re-housing people, but also keeping them housed – resulting in a better and stronger community.

Each gift made to this campaign will be matched dollar for dollar by our generous sponsors, meaning your gift of $25 turns into $50 for the cause! Giving more results in an even greater matching gift. Proceeds from Equinox Remote will support the homeless services of St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore, the largest provider of shelter and housing services to those experiencing homelessness in the Baltimore region.

  • Background Information

    Equinox is a new, unique celebration to raise funds and awareness towards the goal of ending homelessness in Baltimore. The inaugural event was scheduled to take place on September 19, 2020 for 500 people at the Baltimore Museum of Industry. Unfortunately, due to the limitations caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic for large group gatherings, the event has been changed to online Sleep Out Challenge campaign and a live-streaming event.
