Programs 

Community Resource Center

The Community Resource Center (CRC) is a program created to further our organization's mission to empower families in Baltimore by partnering with them to meet their basic needs and beyond as they transition from temporary instability to lasting independence.

The CRC is an online marketplace of everyday goods. Some items are common, while others are more peculiar, however all of these items can make a difference for a family that needs them. The CRC Catalog includes items like clothing, appliances, cookware, bedding, shoes, baby items, shoes, bag, house goods, beauty items, electronics, pet supplies and more

The program is available to Baltimore city residents only and requires a FREE annual membership.

Pop Pantries 

PoP Pantries are stand alone micro-pantries filled with basic hygiene necessities in an effort to combat hygiene poverty in Baltimore; particularly as it affects gap families (families that earn too much to qualify for benefits, but not enough to consistently make ends meet and support their families) and other groups that face barriers to accessing the services and resources they need.

Existing locations include:

  • Hygiene Pop Pantry @ Greenmount West Community Center (Open to the Public)
  • Hygiene PoP Pantry @ Langston Hughes Community Center (Open to the Public)
  • Hygiene PoP Pantry @ BACHS Healthcare (Currently unavailable) 
  • Hygiene Pop Pantry @ Edgewood Management (Private / Residents Only)

    Agencies and organizations interested in their own Pop Pantry should email us at info@partsofpeace.org 

Baltimore Hygiene Bank

The Baltimore Hygiene Bank is a high quality, low-cost online marketplace for popular and generic brands of personal and household hygiene items. Items are deeply discounted and delivery of items is also subsidized to ensure that members get the products they need for the price they can afford. 

The Baltimore Hygiene Bank is a social enterprise committed to combatting hygiene poverty and increasing hygiene access by subsidizing the cost of hygiene necessities for members.

The Baltimore Hygiene Bank is members only, and currently only open to Baltimore city & Baltimore county residents.
