As Thespians, we value and cherish our relationships built with one another within the community. This year our charity is Sarah’s House, a homeless shelter located in Fort Meade specifically for victims of abuse, the mentally ill, and recovered addicts. They can house up to 125 people and the residents can stay there for up to two years. Over 58% of their residents are children. Overall it is a place to get people back on their feet after hardships.

Sarah's House provides safe shelter, daily meals, and personal, as well as professional, casework support for those in need. As a supportive housing program for homeless families, Sarah’s House is much more than just a safe place to sleep. Their goal is to effect positive change in the families we serve by providing the following:

  • emergency housing for up to 90 days
  • transitional housing for 18 to 24 months
  • casework assistance for 12 months
  • parenting classes
  • GED classes
  • computer classes and workshops
  • employment programs
  • licensed child care center
  • variety of counseling services
  • transportation to and from work and doctor appointments
  • three meals each day
  • clothing  

We are honored to have the opportunity to support a charity so important to our community.
We look forward to helping raise awareness for homelessness and addiction recovery in our area, and for your support in this mission. For more details on Sarah's House, please visit their website HERE.


Last year the Thespians raised over $10,000 for Ellie's Bus!  Thank you for your support!
