Due to coronavirus, Lazarus Caucus is unable to host our annual Fall Gala that raises tens of thousands of dollars to support the homeless men in our community. In concert with the State of Maryland, Baltimore County, and Community Assistance Network (CAN), Lazarus Caucus provides for the care of homeless men, including clothing, food, transportation, prescriptions, and counseling. The shelter sleeps up to 140 men daily. Due to coronavirus, we are now in a Housing First scenario. Though how and where we provide help has changed, the need is still great and projected to grow.
It is for these reasons we seek support for our mission. The Lazarus Caucus Fall Classic at The Woodlands on September 21, 2020, is a great opportunity to participate in a wonderful outdoor event. Please encourage your friends and family to join in this best-ball tournament. Golfers of all skill levels are welcome. More than having fun, you are providing a hand up to people in need.

People experiencing homelessness may be at risk for infection during an outbreak of COVID-19. The CDC has developed recommendations for homeless service providers to help safeguard their staff, clients, and guests. These measures include restricting public access to The Westside Men’s Homeless Shelter on the grounds of Spring Grove in Catonsville for the drop-off of donations.
In lieu of providing actual donated items, please consider making a monetary donation to Lazarus Caucus via the link below. Based on the ever-changing daily needs and inventory levels at the shelter, Lazarus Caucus will place orders for necessary items. Filled orders will be delivered directly to the shelter. These protocols will help maintain the safety of all involved during this difficult time.
Thank you for your help in supporting our community.
