The Crisis Center is located on Boundary Street in Salisbury, Maryland. The phone number is 410-749-4239. It exists to maintain a presence of peace and hope to people who want to help themselves. The overriding goal is to affirm the self-worth and dignity of those who come here and to help them achieve a level of independent living.

The Crisis Center has four departments:

  • Cash Assistance for evictions, utility cut-offs, health care bills, and other vital needs.
  • Dining Room serving a hot lunch that is available for anyone. A dozen churches in the Salisbury area take turns preparing and serving the meals.
  • Food Pantry that distributes supplemental bags of groceries to families and individuals in need.
  • Hospitality Room for the Homeless, a day shelter for homeless men and women where they can receive food, clothing, take a shower, and have clothes laundered.

For hours of operation, please go to If You Need Help.
