About Us

It starts with breakfast. Manna House provides the homeless and poor of Baltimore City with goods and services to move towards independence and stability.

We help transform people’s lives by feeding them first.

Shelter, hunger, poor physical and mental health, job loss and fears of being vulnerable to violence and arrest are among our clients’ concerns. Unaffordable housing, domestic violence, mental illness, aging out of foster care, addiction and foreclosure are some of the difficult events that bring clients to Manna House.

We are a welcoming setting where the poor and homeless can enjoy a nutritious breakfast seven days a week. Our reliable 365 days/year hot breakfast program serves more than 68,000 meals a year, primarily to the homeless in Midtown Baltimore City. The program is made possible, in part, by a creative system of individual, church- and business-based volunteers who feel a moral imperative to help their neighbors in need.

After breakfast, the homeless can stay indoors in our Day Center, case managers are available to work with the homeless on all issues that they are facing.

Manna House updates its financial information with GuideStar, the world’s largest source of information about nonprofit organizations. GuideStar encourages nonprofit transparency and serves to verify that a recipient organization is established and that donated funds go where donors intend.
