ABOUT US

Saint Martin's Ministries (SMM) of Ridgely, MD, is a non-profit organization that has provided a safety net for individuals and families living in poverty for more than three decades.

We provide an array of services through a single point of entry, with a dignified case management approach, to address immediate and long-term needs. Our four assistance programs include an Emergency Food Pantry, Transitional Shelter, Homelessness Prevention and Thrift Store.

 

Our mission is to help meet basic human needs of impoverished people, to respect and affirm their dignity, and to address the root problems that perpetuate the cycle of poverty.
