Baltimore statistically ranks high among U.S. cities for issues of drug use, child poverty, violence, gang activity, sex trafficking, and teen pregnancy. Many youths suffer from a sense of hopelessness, despair, and lack of purpose.

Forward Edge teams are partnering with local ministries called The Transformation Center and Lilie’s Place to help meet these pressing needs. The Transformation Center serves those stuck in the cycle of poverty, which often includes addiction, educational deficiencies, and lack of a spiritual compass. Lilie’s Place offers low-income community members food and clothing.

These ministries are part of Streetlite Church, led by our partners Pastor Brian and Carol Zimmerman, which is committed to making a lasting difference in the local community and beyond. 

Any team of 10 or more is invited to serve in Baltimore. Total trip cost for each team member is $695.
