The Reservoir Hill House of Peace (RHHP) is a richly diverse community of young professionals, volunteers, and asylum seekers. As a ministry of the North Baltimore Mennonite Church (NBMC), the RHHP:

  • Provides housing for persons who want to share God's reconciling love in a diverse urban setting in Baltimore, sharing a common vision of service.
  • Provides shelter for asylum seekers, through the Asylum Seekers Housing Network (ASHN), integrating them into the community, thus facilitating inter-cultural sharing.

Two major areas of volunteer opportunities are to:

  1. Assist the house coordinator and trustees with maintenance and construction projects and seasonal outdoor work, along with house members.
  2. Work with asylum seekers who live at the RHHP, and who are part of the Asylee Women Enterprise, our partner organization, in a variety of areas:
    1. teach English as a second language
    2. provide weekly cooking or art lessons
    3. deliver food packages to asylum seekers
    4. provide transportation for medical or legal assistance appointments
    5. tutor asylum seekers studying to get further training

Living and working at the RHHP provides a great opportunity to live in a diverse community with a sense of mission while experiencing city living and making important contributions to the lives of others. Located in a turn-of-the-century mansion, RHHP housing is communal with shared bathrooms, kitchen, dining, and living rooms. Public bus transportation is convenient; a car is useful but not necessary. House members eat together about once a week and enjoy sharing and tasting each other's food. Volunteers are responsible for their own food. Housing and utilities cost $200/mo.
