GEDCO began with the realization that the elderly members of our congregation and other congregations in North Baltimore were in need of affordable housing and dignified care as they aged. It has grown to become a stand-alone non-profit corporation with the following mission:
“In partnership with faith communities, GEDCO provides affordable housing with supportive services and assists in meeting emergency needs of area residents.”
GEDCO now has 53 member organizations including Govans Presbyterian who support the following projects:
Affordable Housing for Seniors:
Stadium Place (Ednor Apartments, Venable Apartments II, Weinberg Court Apartment, Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Senior Housing at the Gallagher Mansion and Epiphany House and the Green House)
Transitional housing for homeless men and women

Housing for the mentally ill:

Food Pantry, Emergency Financial Assistance, CARES Career Connection, and North East Food Pantry. For information about making a donation, please go to the GEDCO website, www.gedco.org, and click on CARES.
