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.

  • Background Information

    The name Equinox is drawn from the twice a year astronomical event when daytime and nighttime are of equal duration all over the world. Historically, the Fall Equinox was a time for harvest celebrations that united communities and involved people coming together to share the bounty from their fields. In that spirit, the Equinox event is a celebration of the ideals of kindness, sharing, and equal opportunity for all, symbolized through light.

    The planning for our debut Equinox event began in the summer of 2019 and was originally intended to be held in September of 2020. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic forced those plans to be put on hold and a virtual event was held in its place. While the pandemic is still not fully behind us, amazing breakthroughs in vaccine technology has allowed every adult to now have access to safe vaccines. With many in our community vaccinated against COVID-19, and the number of vaccinated adults growing every day, we believe that by September 2021 the Baltimore community will be more than ready to enjoy a safe, outdoor event—especially after 18 months of social restrictions!

  • The Cause

    On any given night, over 4,000 people in the Baltimore region experience homelessness. As the largest provider of homeless services in the area, St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore is leading the way towards achieving an end to homelessness in our community. We offer a wide range of services and solutions to address this complex community problem, including individual and family shelters, prevention, shelter diversion services, rapid rehousing, and permanent supportive housing.

    Our services continued uninterrupted throughout the pandemic. But the economic impact of the pandemic has brought new challenges, with thousands of people now facing severe financial hardships and eviction. We are actively working to prevent more people from falling into homelessness, but we need your help to address this growing and urgent need! By supporting Equinox, you can be part of the solution.

  • Safety Measures

    Due to these unprecedented times, to ensure a safe and enjoyable event for everyone, we are taking some precautionary measures for this year’s event:

    The main event activities will be outdoor. The Baltimore Museum of Industry features an outdoor pavilion, and we will be adding additional tented areas.

    Masks will be required when attendees are in the Baltimore Museum of Industry indoor spaces.

    Pre-registration will be required for all attendees that will include vaccination verification.

    We are working hard to ensure those working the event, including SVDP staff, venue and catering employees, band members, photographers, and valet parking attendants will be vaccinated before the event date.

    Baltimore City requirements for reduced venue capacity will be observed if applicable.

    We believe these measures are important safeguards that will allow us to hold an amazing, worry-free event for our guests. We recognize that not all people may decide to be vaccinated by our event date, but trust everyone understands the need for this vaccination requirement in order for us to create a safe event for all of our attendees.

You can be part of the solution.
