Our Crisis Response Story

Although Somebody Cares Baltimore is not a crisis relief organization, we help connect the churches, organizations, and first responders in times of distress.

We have connections with organizations nation wide. When a disaster happens, man made or natural, we respond with what we call the “Net That Works.”

It all started for us on September 11th, 2001. Right after the tragedy, we brought missions teams to the city to feed the first responders.

During hurricane sandy, we had a box truck full of supplies. When the waters receded from the lower east side of Manhattan, we were able to feed thousands before the electricity was even on.

Our friends at Mercy Chefs joined us to feed hot meals to more than 14,000 people each day.

Crisis Response is part of Somebody Cares Baltimore’s vision. We believe what we can do together far outweighs what we can do alone.
