Listed below are general and program specific areas for volunteering and supporting our work. To get involved contact Xanthe Key at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 410.728.2227.
Intersection of Change:
- Art@Work celebration: This summer our Jubilee Arts program will again partner with Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts and YouthWorks to offer Art@Work which hires 80 teenagers and 8 professional artists to create 8 prominent murals over a five week period in the summer. This year’s sites will include four murals in the Resevoir Hill community and four in the Waverly community. While project expenses have been raised to cover all wages for the participating teens, artists, and administrative work, we still need $4,000 in donations or in-kind contributions to hold the end of project unveiling on July 28 which includes trolley tours and food.
- House Party: If you love the work we do and also like entertaining at your home, please consider hosting an art house party to support our Jubilee Arts program. Our staff will help prepare an art activity and then simply invite friends and family from your networks to come support a good cause while having fun.
- Gardening/landscaping: Help keep our many greenspaces looking great with weeding, mulching, pruning, and planting support

- Wednesday meals: Martha’s Place holds a group meeting for its clients every Wednesday at 5:30pm that includes a meal, a brief meeting on house issues, then a guest speaker presentation. Martha’s Place seeks volunteers willing to help either by preparing the evening’s meal (generally to serve 10-15 people) or by facilitating the evening’s presentation. Topics for these sessions are developed ahead of time with the Program Director of Martha’s Place and have ranged from talks by individuals about their recovery experiences, to anger management seminars, to arts and crafts activities.
