About Us

The Shade Tree is a 24-hour accessible shelter which offers life changing services to victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse, human trafficking, elder abuse, and street violence. Our doors are open to women (with or without children), and unaccompanied youth of any gender facing economic hardship who lack an adequate place to live. Programs and services at The Shade Tree promote stability, dignity, and self-reliance, while escaping the cycle of abuse, homelessness, or violence. The Shade Tree is the largest shelter of its kind in the state and is the only 24-hour accessible shelter designed specifically to meet the needs of women and their children in the region.

In 1980, #nasa physicist Valerie Thomas invented the illusion transmitter, a device that uses concave mirrors to project multidimensional images onto a screen display - she received a patent for this in 1980. Born and raised in Baltimore, she attended Morgan State University and was one of two women majoring in physics. She excelled in her math and science courses, graduating with a physics degree with highest honors in 1964.
Upon graduation, she began her NASA career where she developed real-time computer data systems to support satellite operations control centers and even oversaw the creation of the Landsat program. She had a highly decorated career with NASA until she retired in 1995.

Financial abuse is a form of domestic violence. 40% of adults stated in a survey that they do not understand what financial abuse is. In many situations financial stability is the leading barrier of a domestic violence victim, which often leads them to stay in an unsafe environment.
Know the signs of abuse. If you have any questions or are seeking assistance, you can call our 24/7 hotline at (855) 385-0072. If you are in immediate danger, call 911.
In 2007, Congress passed its first resolution recognizing November as National Homeless Youth Awareness Month (NHYAM) to build awareness of the issue of youth homelessness, including its causes and potential solutions, and highlight the need to work to prevent homelessness among children and teens. Since then, November has been a time to elevate the issue of youth homelessness; and grow the commitment to intensify efforts to prevent and end homelessness among young people in the U.S. 
In response to the issue of homeless youth, The Shade Tree has started our Unaccompanied Minor Program, which will allow us to provide emergency shelter to unsheltered unaccompanied minors.
For more information about our programming, please visit our website at theshadetree.org/get-help/
