Asylum Seekers Housing Network

ASHN's mission is to provide shelter and social support in a welcoming community to asylum seekers, by demonstrating God's love, advocating for justice and fostering cross cultural understanding.

Established in 2004 as a program of North Baltimore Mennonite Church and Reservoir Hill House of Peace, ASHN serves individuals that have fled their native country because of war, torture, political or religious persecution, and are in the process of applying for protection in the United States. While the United States has a long history of welcoming those seeking asylum, the application process is often lengthy and leaves applicants in a vulnerable situation. It is difficult for asylum seekers to obtain a work permit and they are not eligible for government assistance. ASHN was created to fill this gap by providing shelter and social support for asylum seekers as they seek protection and transition to life in Baltimore and the United States. 

ASHN's vision is to assist asylum seekers in transitioning to self sufficiency; giving them the foundation to create new lives and to reunite and support their families.  Additionally, ASHN seeks to build a network of resources in the Baltimore area to develop a sustainable model of housing and community support for asylum seekers.

Reservoir Hill House of Peace

The Reservoir Hill House of Peace (RHHP) is a ministry of NBMC. The Atlantic Coast Conference of Mennonite Church USA owns the building and supports its programs.  RHHP is located at 2401 Eutaw Place, Baltimore, MD 21217.

 

RHHP Core Values:

  • Service - We strive to serve each other with love.  We also work to serve our neighborhood and Baltimore City.  Our acts of service may seem small, but we know they have a positive and lasting impact.
  • Simple Living - We embrace efforts to live more simply and sustainably.  We seek opportunities to share resources, consume wisely, grow our own food, walk, bike, or take public transit, compost, recycle, conserve energy, and take time to read a good book.
  • Peace and Reconciliation - Because God has reconciled all things through Jesus, we, too, work for reconciliation and peace at RHHP, in our neighborhood and in our daily lives.  We value our connection to the Mennonite Church and seek to engage church members in our work of reconciliation.
  • Cultural Exchange - We come from different cultures within the U.S. and from around the world.  We desire to learn from each other, share cultural practices, taste different foods, and appreciate the beauty of our different backgrounds.
  • Spirituality - RHHP is a ministry of North Baltimore Mennonite Church.  With Jesus at the center, we walk together and support each other in the multifaceted spiritual journey of the life we experience individually and as a community.  We encourage individuals to engage in spiritual practices.
